Attention to Strengths and Flaws
Jesuit superior of his community at Seattle University, Fr. Patrick Howell noted that in media coverage of Pope Francis “relatively few articles explore what it means to be a Jesuit.” Fr. Howell reminds that one feature of Jesuit formation helps each one to have a “deep understanding of one’s own personal flaws or sins but also a grasp of one’s own precious self, created in God’s very image, and called to an incredible intimacy with God.”
