Imitators of Jesus

An article in the January 7-14, 2013 issue of America magazine predates the election of our outstanding, humble, Holy Father, Pope Francis, a Jesuit himself.  I wanted to share Fr. Walter Ciszek, S.J., with you as my inspiration, like Pope Francis – both of whom are imitators of Jesus – loving, reaching out to the disenfranchised.  For Fr. Ciszek, this meant prisoners in Russia . . . it meant suffering with them, himself.  Please know both saintly men – one in Heaven, the other on earth at this time – are holding us all in the Lord Jesus’ Heart and Hands – in His Risen Blessing of us, born of His dying for us!  The article can be found at:   http://americamagazine.org/issue/article/chained-free
