Jesuit Update: One Month after Entrance

IMG_4746

One month after Entrance Day, life with the Jesuits couldn’t be more rewarding. My fellow first-year novices and I have recently been “missioned” to the “Teaching Experiment,” which consists of about 10 weeks of instruction at educational institutions across the Twin Cities. My superior has sent me specifically to Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Minneapolis (http://www.cristoreytc.org/), where I will be assistant teaching in Spanish classrooms, working with the campus ministry office, and tutoring kids in AP U.S. History. I’m very excited about the prospect of making a positive impact on some of the students at the school by modeling Christian behavior and by showing loving mercy to the young adults there.

In other news, I’ve been preparing my first homiletic reflection. The topic will be the Parable of the Lost Sheep (Luke 15:3-7). The Spirit has been inspiring me to speak about Christ’s redemptive mercy, so I think I’ll go that route with the sermon. I find it fascinating that Jesus came into the world to lead us sheep into green pastures, yet we led Him (the Young Sheep [Lamb] of God) to the cross. Nevertheless, He shows us mercy and forgiveness!

Please pray for me as I prepare!

Best wishes,

David JW Inczauskis, nSJ
