Happy birthday, Father General!

Today the novices of Loyola House are pleased to extend our prayerful best wishes to Father Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, Superior General of the Society of Jesus, on the occasion of his birthday. We are grateful for all he has done as General of this least Society, and our thoughts are with him and all Jesuit major superiors as they meet in Loyola, Spain to discuss the the Society's future (click here to read more about this meeting). On a personal note, as one with a strong interest in Eastern Christianity I've long appreciated the fact that Father Kolvenbach was ordained in the Armenian rite and spent much of his Jesuit life in Lebanon before he was elected General. I hope my readers will join me in wishing Father General a very happy birthday. Ad multos annos! AMDG.
