  • ON VALENTINE‚ÄôS DAY: HOW CAN WE CONTEMPLATE A LOVE BEYOND EXPECTATION?

    Jim Broderick King '87
    Happy St. Valentine’s Day! I hope this holiday finds you well-loved and ready to show that love to the people you care about (without spending an exorbitant bunch of cash for a handful of flowers – with apologies to my wife who also edits this blog and could change this sentence)!

    In preparing to write this Inspire & Ignite entry, I considered how I might connect to this unconventional feast day that is wrapped in the undeniable consumerist trappings of modern culture. Could I celebrate the legend of the eponymous St. Valentinus? Might I share the story of the ancient Roman Lupercalia, upon which our Valentine traditions are based? (We Latin teachers love to share this scandal, but Mr. Tricco would frown on that.) What is the hook for today’s blog?

  • FRONT ROW SEAT OF DISCERNMENT

    David Card '87
    These days, I am crossing a threshold as a parent. As I write this, my daughter and I are on a flight to one of two colleges she is trying to decide between. She has been accepted to both, and both meet the approval of her parents, so the ball is completely in her court. For my part, I am simply trying to pay close attention while staying out of the way.

  • GROWING FROM COMPASSION

    Laura Miller '21
    I’m a junior. You can probably guess what that means…. I’m pre-occupied with college admissions and how to bolster my resume to have a better chance to get into the university of my choice. Our teachers tell us that this is the year our grades matter most; our parents put us into SAT/ACT prep classes; and we try to participate in more extracurricular activities. It’s exhausting! So where does that leave the “mandatory” two weeks of community service for Service Projects?

  • PRECONDITIONS FOR DISCERNMENT

    Jimmy Tricco
    How should I spend my Academic Support time? Which homework assignment needs to be completed first? Do I attend the basketball game or the swim meet tonight? Qdoba or Chipotle? Our students find themselves making countless decisions every day. In January, selection for next year’s courses commences with haste. Not to mention continued ACT preparation and testing for those future college applications. Seniors await news from schools. Big decisions loom. Often, I hear students speak of these decisions, planning and to-do lists with exhaustion and contempt. This preparation, this daily stuff, may become a burden. And it’s during these 'time-to-make decisions' moments when our Ignatian Spirituality may (read: always) be valuable.

  • SPONSORSHIP REVIEW: A LONG, LOVING LOOK AT THE REAL

    Sajit Kabadi
    The late Fr. Walter Burghardt, SJ spoke of “taking a long, loving look at the real.”

    When I teach theology, I often ask my students to reflect on the difference between a look and a gaze. A look is noticing, making note of or a quick glimpse, while a gaze is a deeper meditated focus on that which can stir thoughts, feelings and emotions enlivening our humanity within God’s creation.

    This school year, in collaboration with our Jesuit Province, Regis Jesuit has been taking an in-depth long, loving look at our Catholic, Jesuit mission in action. This process, known as sponsorship review, is something all Jesuit high schools go through approximately every five years and is meant to assess how much in alignment with its mission a school is. Regis Jesuit’s last review took place during the 2014-15 school year.

  • THE HEART OF JESUIT EDUCATION: SERVICE PROJECTS

    David Card '87
    “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” - Mark 12:30-31

    As the calendar turns to January, our juniors and seniors engage in what is often one of the most formative and transformative experiences of their time at Regis Jesuit–Service Projects. To put it simply, our aim is to engage our students directly with love of neighbor and to be purposeful in identifying neighbors to love who are on the margins or who represent vulnerable populations.
