A Fond Farewell...
Today is the big day. I do not often make prayer requests via the blog, but now would seem to be an appropriate time to ask for prayers both for myself and my novice class. Today, I am off to the Jesuit novitiate in Grand Coteau, LA. Unfortunately, it looks as though I will not be able to continue writing here, as our novice master is concerned that it would take away from our formation as Jesuits. I would tend to agree with his concern, and even if I didn't, I would still respect his opinion with obedience.
If it happens that this is still up and running by the end of the novitiate (2 yrs.), I may come back if fj'll have me. At any rate, perhaps she can post up an update or two on my progress, as she gets them. I have most definitely enjoyed myself here, and spouting off my many and varied opinions. God willing, in two years time I'll be saying these words:
Almighty and eternal God, I understand how unworthy I am in Your Divine sight.
Therefore, by Your boundless goodness and mercy
St. Ignatius de Loyola, patron of Jesuits and founder of the Society, pray for us.
+Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam+
"I prefer the servants of God to stand out in virtue rather than in number, and to be distinguished more by deeds than by an honorable name."
