Courtesy of Brother John Moriconi, S.J., here's a photo of the nine Chicago and Detroit Province Jesuits who pronounced First Vows on August 13th, joined by our respective provincials. This picture was taken in the sanctuary of Gesu Church in Detroit shortly after the conclusion of the Vow Mass. Please be sure to pray for the nine newly-vowed scholastics as we move into First Studies - four of us here at Fordham, and five at Loyola University Chicago. Please pray also for all the Society's new novices (Jason and Matt, for example) and for men beginning the second year of novitiate (of whom Rich is a worthy representative). While you're at it, pray for vocations to the Society of Jesus. As you make these prayers, please know that I'm praying for you too. AMDG.

I'm an occasional reader of your blog (your old one, of course). Congratulations on your advancement and your move to NY. I don't think you've ever addressed this on your blog, but I'm very curious: what led you to, and then away from, law? I assume a greater calling led you away from, but what led you to law in the first place? Did you know before Notre Dame that you take this (more important, more valuable) path? Very curious. And I'll keep reading.

I am so glad you are keeping posting the novices' notes. It is helping me discern my call. Everybody looks great in the photograph. I was so pleased to see a photograph of your vows ceremony. Thank you!. I am glad now I have one and with your permission I am going to make a copy to keep it on my photo album.
