THank you

Friday, Jul. 16, 2010

Paul gave us an excellent example of inner freedom and availability for the service of God and the Church. There were some points he did not like in some of his assignments (including the last one, from which I benefited much)... and yet he worked at it with enthusdiasm and dedication to the end. He clearly did not join the Jesuits to do what he liked, but what was needed and asked from him. I was deeply touched by the cheerfulness and creativity he put to work in everything. He could also laugh at his own imperfection and the criticisms it might elicit from those who thought differently; a clear sign of greatness of heart and trust in the Lord. THank you, Paul, for having enriched our lives.
