Surprise

The Word of Life that, once accepted, creates wonder, joy, and blessings. 

Called by God…to a life of love, service, and, most of all, surprises. In 50 years as a Jesuit, the one truth that is always present is that our God is the God of surprises. He surprises us with his love, his care, and his call, or perhaps I should say calls, for that in many ways defines the life of a Jesuit. 

To go where the Spirit and the Society call, to do what is asked, and to always be open to the Spirit.

 
Discovering God’s will is a fascinating event in life, but it is never as clear or understandable as we would like. Being open to Christ’s call and to God’s will in everyday life, community, friends, and prayer make all the difference. The overwhelming power of love and care for others assures us that what we are doing at the moment is truly the will of God and that seeking or expecting more certainty is folly. This, for me, has been the great hallmark of this life: to know I am sharing in God’s will and work no matter where, how, or when… that is the essence of being called by God to this grand and priestly work. Isaiah 42:3 calls out to us even today: “A bruised reed he shall not break, and a smoldering wick he shall not quench.” These are thoughts that have molded my life, never perfectly followed, but always shared.
