Novice in the news.

On the night of the Oscars, it's fitting that I acknowledge the recent media attention accorded to Loyola House's foremost film maven, my classmate and good friend Jake Martin. Currently on Long Experiment at Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School in Indianapolis, Jake is the subject of a glowing profile in the most recent issue of the local diocesan newspaper The Criterion. The article briefly recounts Jake's journey from stand-up comic to Jesuit novice and looks at a student improv group Jake has started at Brebeuf. In sharing his gifts with his students, Jake is helping the kids at Brebeuf develop their own talents and, in the process, helping them grow closer to God. I'm glad to see Jake get some public recognition for the strong mark he has made during his Long Experiment - the good press is richly deserved and will surely be of benefit to the Society of Jesus. Congratulations, Jake! AMDG.
