Strong, yet gentle Jesuit

Jesuits contine to challenge the accepted norms within Christianity which, when held up in the light of the irresistible simplicity and humility of Christ which they, themselves, seek to mirror mean that all we have built up seems tawdry and vain.

The words and actions of the new pope are both a huge encouragement and a continued reminder of the beauty of a life given over to the service of Christ in the other. Reminding us that “authentic power is service” and urging the Church, as the Body of Christ, to: “enter more fully into that service which has its radiant culmination on the cross”  he is an inspirational shot in the arm for those who follow the call to the life  incarnational.
