What a world we live in, and what an existence: to be able to travel hundreds of miles in a day. What would the first Jesuits have thought of that?
Human-made objects can now travel half a million miles a day. How will we hold up when we human beings can be part of pilgrimages moving at those speeds and even greater? And what will be find at the end of these new pilgrimages to new planets? This, perhaps?
I like this quote attributed to him:
And if you wish to bring forth much fruit, both for yourselves and for your neighbors, and to live consoled, converse with sinners, making them unburden themselves to you.
