My days as a teacher have echoed with the grace of Ignatian spirituality. I feel deep gratitude to my Jesuit teachers at Loyola High and LMU and to my Jesuit friends and colleagues throughout two decades of teaching at Jesuit schools. I am also grateful to Jesuit heroes of social justice and their ordinary daily kindness upon which justice depends. They have taught me to seek to be a person for others. Such persons are possessed of a precious gift, a grace that enlivens every encounter, every friendship, every love.
