2 Thessalonians 3:16 “Now may the Lord of Peace Himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.”

We finished up our eight days of silent retreat and closed out the final lectures. Fr. John Dardis made his final visit to us as the European Tertianship for 2016-2017 drew to a close. The overwhelming feeling was ¬†of gratitude for the program and the opportunity to be pupils in this “school of the heart” while feeling the pull of our missions that await us. We are indebted to all who have made this possible, especially our benefactors, Frs. Paul Pace and Jan van de Poll, and the Jesuits in Dublin.

Saint Ignatius envisioned the Companions of Jesus as a body with diverse members, spread out to bring the Name of the Lord to the whole world. Staying true to this vision, the tertians have packed what little we need and set out. Please pray for us, for the Society, and for all those to whom we will minister. And may the peace of Our Lord be with you all.
