|I am a full-time chaplain at St. Joseph Hospital, Creighton University
Medical Center in Omaha.
I have been doing this since January 2000 and I definitely like this ministry.
|More about me:
I joined the Jesuits in Salamanca, Spain, in 1951 and was ordained a
priest in Munich, Germany, in 1965. My Jesuit life and work has taken
place in a variety of locations: the Caribbean, Germany, Canada and
the United States. I have lived over forty years in the States, of
which almost thirty were spent in Milwaukee, WI. I taught engineering
at Marquette University from 1971 to 1991, when I resigned my position
to be part of the formation team at our novitiate in St. Paul, MN.
During the last six years before moving to Omaha I was in charge of
a Jesuit community we opened in the Milwaukee area to provide adequate
health care for our elderly and infirm Jesuits. During all those years,
including my teaching years, I always stayed in touch with spirituality
ministry, both in spiritual direction and in personally directed retreats.
|Writing these reflections:
Writing these daily reflections is not unlike preparing a short homily,
which I do quite regularly. Because here I do not know ahead of time who
my "audience" will be, I try to get below the surface of the data supplied
by the readings or feast day and find dimensions that could be helpful for
anyone spiritually interested enough to read them on our web page.
