It has been exciting to experience Fr. James Martin, SJ, in these last weeks, knowing that he will be giving the 2013 Kay Butler Gill Lecture in Christian Spirituality here at General Seminary on Thursday, April 11, at 7:00pm! He has been widely in the media as a popular commentator on the election and seating of Pope Francis I, the first Jesuit chosen as the Holy Father for the Roman Catholic Church. A nationally renowned spiritual teacher, Father Martin is a Jesuit priest, author, and culture editor of America, the national Catholic magazine. His books include the newly published Between Heaven and Mirth and the best-selling The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything. His lecture is entitled Rejoice Always: Joy, Humor and Laughter in the Spiritual Life. Who says religion needs to be gloomy? He will speak on how true faith leads to joy, how the saints and spiritual masters used humor, and how laughter is a gift from God.
