July 24, 2013

Jesuit Father Christopher Viscardi is from Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL.

He teaches, is head of the Theology Department, and does Hispanic ministry in the area.

As a Jesuit, living as a “contemplative in action” is a very familiar phrase, but it is also a constant challenge. Priestly ministry among the Hispanic immigrant community, along with the pastoral and teaching ministry at Spring Hill College, keep me as engaged and on-call as many of our graduates who are now struggling to combine healthy family lives with the demands of their professions or of corporate America.

And so the words of our superior general, Fr. Nicolas, after last year’s international gathering of Jesuit leaders at Nairobi, caught my attention: “…one of the primary challenges facing the Society today is that of recovering the spirit of silence.”

May 1, 1996

As I sit here on my fourth day of a retreat began late because of pastoral responsibilities in my parish—a sudden drowning of a couple's only two children—I listen to the symphony of wind, birds and silence, and I realize that only now am I beginning to truly enter my retreat. It is Wednesday, a day of Great Silence for deeper solitude and more time for personal prayer.

So Lauds are private and Mass is later this evening and it feels like a holiday! It is also May 1st, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, the beginning of Mary's month.
