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.
Last week we celebrated the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. As Christians it’s important to learn about other cultures to get a fuller understanding of who God is. This week, senior Reyli Rico, a Mexican-American, tells the story of St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patron of México and all the Americas. Reyli explains the customs that he and many Hispanic-Americans celebrate in honor of Our Lady choosing a lowly indigenous man to help build up God’s kingdom. What can we learn from St. Juan Diego? How are we all called to build up the church on Earth?

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.
