SUSCIPE Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding and my entire will, all I have and call my own. You have given all to me. To you, Lord, I return it. Everything is yours; do with it what you will. Give me only your love and grace, that is enough for me. â€” St. Ignatius Loyola
Celebrating Our Jubilarians June 15, 2013 Dear Brothers, Peace of Christ! Each year, as we come together for ordination and province days, we celebrate our jubilarians with a special emphasis on our brothers who have been in the Society of Jesus for 50 years. When these men entered the Society in 1963, they could not have imagined the various ways that the Lord would call on their talents, patience, and generosity in the service of the Kingdom of God. This booklet honors all of our jubilarians and includes brief reflections by our golden jubilarians on how they have answered Godâ€™s call as Jesuits. Please join us in thanking these men for their service and pray for them in gratitude to God for their labors for the mission of the Church and the Society of Jesus. In Christ,
Fr. Timothy P. Kesicki, SJ Provincial Chicago-Detroit Province

Richard P. Abert, SJ When I reflect on my 50-year adventure in the Society, the refrain from Dan Schutte’s song, “Yahweh the Faithful One” begins to play in my heart. Faithfulness is at the heart of my gratitude for the path I keep discovering in my journey—God’s faithfulness. I recently happened upon a reflection I crafted at the time of my ordination. Not surprisingly, I can still recognize a taste of my truth in it, honed quite a bit in the blessing of ministry with people who, in God’s deep faithfulness, became the gifted potters of the vessel I am still becoming. I am repeatedly invited to fall into Deuteronomy 7: 7–10, and that Word keeps me discovering a faithful love that is a true blessing, and keeps pushing me to live and speak that gift for others. Here are a couple of tweaked lines from my ordination reflection that still touch my sense of God’s faithfulness. “Through the gift of people whom and with whom I have served, I have had a wonderful taste of what it means to be loved, and so, challenged to love as well. . . . Through the healing presence of others, I continue to be called to the belief that my very human fears and weaknesses can be a gift through which God can earnestly speak and show His heart to others. . . . I am grateful to be part of a community, part of a world in which God is always revealing God’s reconciling self as loving and faithful, in and through us.” Washed in 50 years of blessing, I continue to plead for the heart voice to speak even a bit of God’s faithfulness to people. It is why I often sing to myself, “. . . Yahweh is a loving God, Yahweh the faithful one.”
JOY BORN: May 27, 1944 ENTERED: August 14, 1963 ORDAINED: June 13, 1975 RESIDES: Creighton University Jesuit Community, Omaha, Nebraska
Burnell B. Bisbee, SJ From my first contact with Jesuits as a freshman at Creighton Prep, I was drawn to this group of men who seemed to be happy in their work and lives. This attribute expanded as we came to know each other. As the years went on, the concept of joy deepened as it complied with the essence of “seeing God in all things.” How can one see a beautiful flower, delve into a complex mathematical system, accompany a family on their growth in faith, or see that bright light of recognition in the eyes of a student and not perceive the hand of God active? We Jesuits are recognized as critical thinkers, demanding the best of ourselves and those with whom we work. But at a deeper level we are searchers, always looking, striving to see what God has prepared for us to see and experience around the next corner, the next discovery of our research, and—most of all—in the next person we encounter. This sense of adventure that comes with looking for the divine presence everywhere develops men filled with joy. There have been times when I have confronted pain, despair, and tragedy. As a scholastic, for example, I accompanied two other Jesuits to inform a family that their son had been killed on a school trip. My experiences as a Jesuit have brought out a compassion that I did not know God had been building in me. In a world where we find people destructively critical of one another, of people laughing at others rather than with them, people plotting to destroy or harm their enemy, the Ignatian vision of God’s creation stands in contrast. I consider myself lucky that I have been called to share this journey with my fellow Jesuits for these 50 years.
INDWELLING BORN: July 6, 1941 ENTERED: September 1, 1963 ORDAINED: June 7, 1973 RESIDES: Cincinnati Jesuit Community, Cincinnati, Ohio
Gene J. Carmichael, SJ In my junior year at Holy Cross, Tom Blum, a senior, was in the midst of applying for medical school. After a movie in Kimball Hall, as we stood looking at the mist slowly flow over Worcester, he asked me what I was going to do after graduation. I forget what I answered, but he responded, “Have you ever realized that everything that you have talked about doing could be done if you were a priest?” My 50 years as a Jesuit have been remarkably blessed. What has sustained me is Romans 12:1–3 in the Phillips translation, “Let God remold your minds from within.” Jesus promised that He and the Father and the Spirit would come and make their home within every person. All we need to do is get out of the way and let God work through us. This truth sustained me when, for my regency, I was the Vocations Director for the former Chicago Province, and during my last 33 years at Xavier University as I helped start a counseling center and served in executive roles. God has been especially present during the last eight years in my contract with the State of Ohio to be the Catholic priest for two maximum security state prisons. I just keep trying to get out of the way and let God do what God wishes.
NEW FRONTIERS BORN: June 14, 1938 ENTERED: September 11, 1963 ORDAINED: June 10, 1971 RESIDES: Gonzaga House Jesuit Community, Chicago, Illinois
Bill Creed, SJ On February 21, 2008, Benedict XVI addressed the General Congregation of the Society of Jesus and said two things which have resonated throughout most of my life as a Jesuit: “In its history the Society of Jesus has lived extraordinary experiences of proclamation and encounter between the Gospel and the cultures of the world—suffice it to think of Matteo Ricci in China, Roberto de Nobili in India, or the “Reductions” in Latin America. Today I exhort you to follow in the footsteps of your predecessors with the same courage and intelligence but also with as profound motivation of faith and passion to serve the Lord and His Church.” Then he said, “Finally, I invite you to reserve a specific attention to the ministry of the Spiritual Exercises that has been characteristic of your Society from its origins.” What an adventurous life to be challenged by those new frontiers, both exterior/ geographic frontiers and interior/spiritual frontiers. What a humbling life to be invited into relationship with those whom cultures call the last and the least and to be so personally gifted by those at the margins. What a freeing life to be living and sharing Ignatian spirituality, which challenges us to open daily to “the more.” And to do this, not alone, but with brother Jesuits and lay colleagues who are animated as Companions of Jesus!

Jonathan Haschka, SJ
During my regency at Creighton Prep, I met a freshman who worshipped football legend Joe Namath. His folks took him to a game and he lingered outside the locker room hoping to see Namath up close. As the team came out and headed for the bus, Joe’s shoes came loose from his gym bag and dropped to the ground right in front of the boy. Joe turned to him and said, “Hey kid, would you get those for me?” The boy told this story in speech class and said it was the proudest moment of his life. It has been the greatest joy in my life to carry Jesus’ shoes. We end the Suscipe saying, “Your love and your grace are enough for me.” This is more a reflection on what has been than on what we hope for in the future.
SURPRISING BORN: November 21, 1944 ENTERED: August 8, 1963 ORDAINED: June 16, 1973 RESIDES: Bellarmine Jesuit Retreat House, Barrington, Illinois
Paul B. Macke, SJ I keep telling people that the seeming detours of my life have become the main road. Growing up in Cincinnati, I chose to go to the Diocesan High School rather than St. Xavier High School, the Jesuit school where my father had gone. And yet my family and I were surprised that I still chose to enter the Society. During my high school senior retreat, the retreat master, John Wenzel, SJ (deceased), had been a good friend of my uncle, Frank Macke, my dad’s oldest brother. John ushered me into the Society. I was surprised to go from a six-man dorm in the novitiate and juniorate at Milford to philosophy studies in a place with a bedroom with a private bath, sliding doors leading to a pool, and piped-in music at the old Hilton Inn in North Aurora, Illinois. In regency I was surprised to be sent to Indianapolis rather than a more familiar place like Cincinnati or Chicago. What I thought was a brief tertianship experience in Nome, Alaska, in 1977 turned out to be an 18-year adventure of ministry throughout Alaska—what a surprise! I was thinking my specialty would be sociology, but a Jesuit I hardly knew suggested pastoral counseling, and I was a therapist for more than 30 years. Our God is a God of surprises—a great and awesome God who has guided this amazing adventure of a vocation as a Jesuit priest now for the last 50 years. I continue to be surprised by this God, even recently with the election of the Jesuit Pope Francis. Yes, our God is a God of surprises, and I give him praise and glory on this golden jubilee—for all the graces, experiences, companions, and colleagues on this surprising journey, Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam!

Frank A. Majka, SJ
I entered the Jesuit novitiate at St. Bonifacius in the fall of 1963, right after finishing at Creighton Prep. Some people who enter later in life have grown up before they become Jesuits; most of my classmates and I grew up after we entered. In the last 50 years, I’ve been blessed to have had wonderful friends and mentors, both Jesuit and lay, who have helped me grow. Here are 10 things these 5 decades of life have taught me and are teaching me, but I know I have more to learn. Early on in the Jesuits I learned: —Wanting to pray doesn’t mean you won’t also fall asleep when you try to do it. —You need friends to make it through the training (and you need to tend to friendships). —Being clever is not the same thing as being wise. Later I discovered: —Most people are more fragile and more resilient than they thought. —Just because something is hard doesn’t make it necessarily good or bad. A lot of bad spirituality doesn’t understand this. —If not kept in check, an eye for the ironies of life can make one cynical. —You can learn a lot by listening—if you really listen. Lastly, I’ve been learning: —It’s tough when people you love die. —Time solves a lot of problems, so be patient. —God isn’t easily shocked or offended. —There’s no such thing as being too grateful. (And I’m especially grateful to my mother and father for their love and prayers for me, my mother’s Irish wit, and my dad’s example of faithfulness and generosity.)
HOME BORN: March 11, 1945 ENTERED: September 1, 1963 ORDAINED: June 11, 1976 RESIDES: Georgetown Jesuit Community, Washington, DC
Dennis L. McNamara, SJ Many homes across the years, many friends, and an array of challenges, some met and some still to be met sum up my time as a Jesuit. Finding a home in the Society and in the Church has been both a task and a gift. Building community has given shape to my ministry, a task drawing on and out the talents of friends and colleagues in many places and many times. The gift lies in the dream, the ambitions of Ignatius and his companions that long ago captured my energies. I have found a home in that dream and in the company of similarly minded companions. Looking back then over the places, the people, and the ministries, I am grateful for the gift and the grace. But homes too have histories, and so too do dreams. I never imagined how my years in the Society would evolve. I never dreamed of how I would need to change with the Society and the Church. The gift then is one that has sustained and anchored me across changing times. But still more, the gift has drawn me on, kept me at the task, and sometimes pushed me along.
HOPE: A STRENGTH AND CHALLENGE BORN: June 20, 1943 ENTERED: August 20, 1963 ORDAINED: June 9, 1973 RESIDES: Colegio Centro America, Managua, Nicaragua
Joseph E. Mulligan, SJ
As I celebrate my 50th year in the Society, I am filled with gratitude for my Jesuit brothers—the ones I knew at UD High, then at the University of Detroit for two years, then in the novitiate, etc. I am especially grateful for Nick Predovich, who was in his first year as novice master when I entered at Colombiere. Nick lived and breathed the spirit of Vatican II, especially its call to the renewal of religious life; his love and hope were contagious. During these years, hope has been a strength I have felt as well as a challenge I have experienced. My basis for hope is the risen Christ himself and the divine life and energy he shares with us, “I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit. . . . I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last” (John 15:5,16). Jesus’ proclamation of the “good news” of the nearness and availability of the Kingdom also gives us cause for hope, “The kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news” (Mark 1:14–15). God, who is love, sent his son in order to help us—to forgive our sins, to teach us the true way of love, and to empower us with the Spirit to live out that way. With this foundation in faith, my hope gets fleshed out when I realize that the world’s problems—social, political, economic, ecological—are made by human beings and thus can be dealt with effectively by human beings. We must know how the system works (or does not work), and we must understand the causes of injustice and suffering. We must then come together to organize communities of struggle, strategizing as to how much we can take on and how to apply the necessary pressure. Community strengthens us and nourishes our hope; as the song “Solidarity Forever” puts it, “the union makes us strong.”
My hope is sorely challenged today by the ecological crisis. There is less and less evidence that industrial nations will make the necessary changes in production and that their citizens are willing to change their patterns of over-consumption. However, precisely at this perilous moment, we have Pope Francis who, perhaps in partnership with the UN, could help enormously to raise world consciousness about this crisis and could help nations to take serious steps to reverse it. After all, God is on the side of the world and humanity: “God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him” (John 3:17).

Chuck W. Niehaus, SJ I have given most of my active ministry years to the poor of our Church and of our world. I entered the Jesuit Novitiate at Milford, Ohio, several months after graduating from St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati in 1963. During my time of discernment about the priesthood and the Society in high school, the film/book To Kill a Mockingbird really inspired me to want to do something with my life. . . especially, among and for those less fortunate. In 1974, my world changed very radically when I went to Peru with seven other Jesuit scholastics on an eight-week ministry and educational trip about the â€œThird World.â€? That trip inspired me to learn Spanish in 1976 and dedicate the majority of my life in ministries among poor/poorer Hispanics living in the United States. My great heroes are Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, who ordained me to the priesthood in Cincinnati in 1974, and Cesar Chavez, whom I had the wonderful opportunity to meet when I was doing Hispanic ministry in Northwest Indiana. My Jesuit life has especially tried to be one of service and empowerment for the Hispanic Church of the United States.
INTERESTING BORN: July 6, 1942 ENTERED: August 14, 1963 ORDAINED: May 18, 1972 RESIDES: Creighton University Jesuit Community, Omaha, Nebraska
W. Richard Ott, SJ Fifty years ago I would not have anticipated that my life as a Jesuit would have been as interesting as it has been. All of the people that I have encountered over the years have had a great deal to do with this. My fellow Jesuits, of course, have had an important role to play in this. All of my teachers, my lay colleagues, the students that I have taught, and now the patients in the hospital where I work have had an important part in this also. I have found all of the places where I have been assigned to study or work to be interesting and to be places where I have seen God at work. These different places include six or more provinces with five universities, two high schools, three seismic observatories, missions, and hospitals. I anticipate that I will continue to find life interesting in the future.
AVA I L A B I L I T Y BORN: July 17, 1945 ENTERED: August 20, 1963 ORDAINED: June 1, 1974 RESIDES: St. Ignatius Jesuit Community, Cleveland, Ohio
James F. Riley, SJ Availability best describes my ministry in the Society. When I entered the Society shortly after graduating from St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, I wanted to belong to a body of people dedicated to the Churchâ€™s mission that could deploy its members where the need was greatest. I expected at the time that would probably mean teaching in a Jesuit high school. Apart from my regency and the first few years after ordination, the Society has used my availability and sent me to serve my Jesuit companions as socius to four provincials. Between stints as socius, I completed graduate studies in canon law, served as a member of Fr. Generalâ€™s curia staff in Rome, and directed two retreat houses. Now about to become superior of the Jesuit community at St. Ignatius High School, Cleveland, I look back on many years of very satisfying work in the vineyard of the Lord.
WONDERMENT BORN: July 31, 1943 ENTERED: August 14, 1963 ORDAINED: June 22, 1973 RESIDES: America House Jesuit Community, New York City, New York
John P. Schlegel, SJ Listen: “What are mere mortals that you care for them . . . ?” Or “The world is charged with the grandeur of God. . . .” Or “Christ plays in ten thousand places, lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his. . . .” For me the past 50 years have been all of that and more. They were years filled with surprises, large and small. I have been awe-struck, in the Biblical sense, with a deep reverence for the presence of God in my life and animating the world around me—natural and physical. When I joined the Jesuits wanting to be a missionary, there were few hints of what was to transpire. I, for one, remain astounded that this blue collar kid from Iowa found a “fit” in higher education. The life of the academy became the focus of nearly four decades of service. These were graced years, blessed with students wise beyond their years, colleagues generous in advice and seasoned counsel, co-workers in mission, companion risk takers and co-crafters of more just and inclusive communities. If “grace builds on nature,” there was LOTS of grace gracing these past years! This wonderment at the presence of God yields a deep and profound, almost tangible, gratitude. It is a gratitude resident in action and contemplation. It is a gratitude for companions shared, opportunities revealed, agendas realized, causes championed, and justice justiced. It is this gratitude, born of the surprising, always transformational, presence of God in Jesus’ gentle mercy, restorative forgiveness, life enriching relationships, and humble attempts at building God’s Kingdom, that accompanied me across these decades. And like Chesterton I can say, “When all my days are ending/I think I shall not be too old/ to stare at everything. . . .” Ah, the wonder of it all! The humbling wonderment of it all!
TRUST BORN: September 11, 1945 ENTERED: August 14, 1963 ORDAINED: June 14, 1974 RESIDES: Holy Rosary Mission Jesuit Community, Pine Ridge, South Dakota
George E. Winzenburg, SJ “Commit your life to the Lord, trust in him and he will act.” (Psalm 37:5) My journey began in high school when a Jesuit scholastic introduced me to prayer. I was given a book that invited me to spend 15 minutes each day talking to God in my own words about things that were important to God and to me. I next used a book that took me through the life of Christ. Jesus became real. I discovered a companion and friend. Ruth Burrows, a Carmelite nun, says that “prayer is essentially what God does, how God addresses us, looks at us. It is not primarily something we are doing to God, something we are giving to God but what God is doing for us. And what God is doing for us is giving us the divine Self in love.” God has revealed his love to me beyond my wildest imagination. I am grateful for my family, Jesuit community, and priesthood. There is much that I still need to learn. I try to live what I preach: Love the call that God has given you and grow in it. Let Christ be your mentor. Let the people you serve be your teachers. I pray to emulate Fr. Arrupe who said, “More than ever, I find myself in the hands of God. This is what I have wanted all my life from my youth. But now there is a difference: the initiative is entirely with God. It is indeed a profound spiritual experience to know and feel myself so totally in God’s hands.” * To see other golden jubilarians celebrating 50 years in the Society, see page 22.
