Variety  

The word that comes to mind when I think of my years in the Jesuits is variety. I never imagined the variety of people I would meet, much less live with in the same community! It’s a miracle that we were able to live in as much peace together as we did.

     
The variety of places I’ve been asked to go also has been amazing — theology studies in an international setting at the Gregorian University; learning about the diversity of apostolates around the world; working with Jesuits from many, many different nations. Then, graduate studies in philosophy at UCLA — from Rome to SoCal. Then, to Loyola University Chicago to teach philosophy. Chicago is not LA, and neither of them was my next stop, Zimbabwe, to start up a new school for young African Jesuits who were studying humanities and philosophy. Then, back to the University of Detroit Mercy for more teaching of philosophy, and not just medieval philosophy, but (why not?) African philosophy — perfect for Motown.

Then, back to the Gregorian University in Rome, this time not to study but to teach — la logica simbolica, in Italiano. And finally 10 years in the philosophy department at Georgetown University, quite a unique setting; again, different from anywhere I had previously been sent.

Mission, mission, mission: I hope, despite my sinfulness, that this is what my life has been about. And the current mission now is hospital chaplaincy at Loyola University Hospital in Chicago, perhaps the mission most unlike anything I’ve had before. And I’m very, very happy with it. It’s been an amazing and humbling ride.
