Surprises   

I went to a public high school and had no lived experience with religious orders of men. After graduating, I got a job and some months later started a religious order search. I knocked on doors of various orders, but none, from my perspective, rang any bells. Then someone suggested knocking on the door of the Society of Jesus. I knocked and heard bells ring!

     
There are two major decisions I have made in my life. The first, to apply to the Society, and the second, to apply for ordination. I have been grateful for the acceptance to the Society and the approval for ordination.

The first 50 years have been most interesting — a journey with many marvelous surprises, and, overall, an excellent ride. I look forward to the next 50 years!
