" In light of Ignatius' 'Two Standards' and 'The Mystries Done From The Garden To The House Of Annas', at any moment we can be Judas or Peter, a Christian life can be a fine line."

Two Years At Georgetown
When final-year economics undergraduate Robert Rogers transferred from Georgetown University to the London School of Economics, his annual tuition fees plummeted from around $41,000 to around $20,000 a year. "It didn't even occur to me to apply abroad when I was in high school," said Rogers, on a recent afternoon outside the LSE's student union. "I certainly didn't hear of any of my [high school] classmates applying to study abroad." Rogers spent two years at Georgetown, the U.S.'s oldest Jesuit-affiliated college, and said that his reasons for moving to the LSE were not financially motivated. "The student life in the U.K., in my experience, is very different to that of the U.S.," said Rogers. "You feel more independent here. It's more adult. Back home, your identity feels more bound up in the institution you are attending." "In Britain, the academics are more in depth and there's a lot more independent study," he said.

I am not a Jesuit, nor am I a cleric. I spent about 5 years under the spiritual direction of a Jesuit, 3 of those years in a weekly directed retreat in everyday life. The profound impact that the Society and the Excercises had upon my life, resulted in me, trying to deal with that impact in some way by sharing my view of Jesus Christ with others. My intention is to pull together Jesuitical and Catholic subjects that interest me. I was born on the feast day of St. Paul Miki, S.J.. I am the father of three small children and an infant, I am married to a great wife.
