“Jesuit brothers did a good job”

After a find wine and dine evening, a friend complimented our very enjoyable conversations and knowing that I went to a Jesuit High school she said coyly, “the Jesuit brothers did a good job”. That got me thinking a bit. I went to a high school ran by Jesuit brothers and priests. I was not aware of any thing unusual in the way they ran the school then. As I reflected on it a bit, I was made aware of the emphasis of academic excellence and the availability of resource for many extracurricular activities. I am not sure how that affected me. I can only say that I was allowed to explore my interests and became a librarian and an alter boy. That started me in a life long journey into the realm of books and theology. That is still my theme today.
