sophomoric

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 04, 2009

Hurry! It's not too late. If you can rush over to the Jesuit Spiritual Center at Milford, you can still catch at least part of the show by the Wise Fools and Happy Stewards, who will regale you with "spiritual analogies illustrated by juggling, guided imagery prayer, clowning, engaging preaching, uplifting songs, and rituals of blessing."

While "guided imagery prayer" sounds like something that could fit with the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius-- just ask James Joyce-- we're breaking some new barriers with the juggling and clowning. One theme for the ... um... event is "Mission: The Challenge Juggle."

These are not your father's Jesuits.
