What has been the greatest grace of your Jesuit vocation?
The greatest gift I have received as a Jesuit is always the people through whom a loving God is made manifest. I am a teacher and a priest. Much of what I do is structured and occurs within predictable boundaries. I lecture, lead seminars, try to research, write and go to meetings. I preach at Mass. But it is in the interstices — in the places in between — where I find God most reliably audible. Again and again I am reminded that God breaks rules and ignores structures. We can’t cling to our own certainties; we can only cling to God. In my Jesuit life, I am called to recognize the holy ground wherein people who perceive themselves at the margins are welcomed home by a God who loves them and leads them out of slavery and into becoming the free women and men God calls them to be.
