Faith & Service
Love is shown more in deeds than in words. St. Ignatius of Loyola
At De Smet Jesuit we offer instruction and guidance rooted in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition and provide opportunities for young men to explore their faith in ways that are personally impactful.
Who are your favorite saints? How do you call upon the saints to intercede for your intentions? In a follow-up from last week’s video, this week we hear from some De Smet Jesuit students, faculty, and staff as they reflect upon their favorite saints and blesseds. Do you see yourself becoming a saint? Let us look to these holy men and women who have gone before us and have shown us that no matter the circumstances, there is always a chance to accept God’s grace and forgiveness and to live our lives for his greater glory so that we may one day live with him forever in Heaven.

A reflection on the meaning of Easter by William Manaker, S.J.
"Today our prime educational objective must be to form men and women for others; men and women who will live not for themselves but for God and his Christ—for the God-man who lived and died for all the world; men and women who cannot even conceive of love of God which does not include love for the least of their neighbors; men and women completely convinced that the love of God which does not issue in justice for men and women is a farce."
Fr. pedro arrupe, s.J.
