AMDG

On the website Jesuits in Britain, I noticed this remarkable painting of today’s saint. He looks up from his well-worn handbook, inviting his viewer and companion to something deeper.

Going back to my experiences of the Spiritual Exercises, and the question, “What are you seeking?” I can hear him ask when I am quiet.

I was also thinking back to college visits some years ago. A few Jesuit universities were on the list. At Creighton, the young miss asked about the acronym “AMDG.”

We can do far worse than dedicate everything in our lives “for the greater glory of God.”
