50 years a Jesuit – Video reflection #6: Vocation within a Vocation (C)
It’s funny. I learned to be an adequate lector. I felt terrified of teaching, of standing up in front of others to teach. Yet… From the very first time I preached, almost 40 years ago, I felt I had something to say to the people of God. Go figure. I taught Eucharist & Sacraments for 11 years at Creighton University and felt good about my interactions with students and the material. But, have been completely allergic to writing.
Until I turned 50 (studying at The Catholic University of America – MA in Liturgical Studies), I felt I had little to say to put in print or digital media. Things changed then. Here’s a story or two about that. Blessings! –roc,sj
