Fr. James Martin, S.J., Presents Ignatian Values Lecture

Fr. James Martin, S.J., Presents Ignatian Values Lecture
Fr. James Martin, S.J. H’17 speaks at the Ignatian Values Lecture.

"Jesuit spirituality wants us to be the person God wants us to be in order to serve others,” Fr. James Martin, S.J. H’17 told a room of first-year students at the Ignatian Values Lecture. Fr. Martin is the editor-at-large of America magazine and an award-winning author. He wrote The New York Times best-selling book “The Jesuit Guide to Almost Everything,” which was the chosen book for the Class of 2021 Royal Reads Program. 

The purpose of the Royal Reads Program is to create a shared experience for Scranton’s newest students through the reading of a carefully selected book, which introduces them to Ignatian values. Each year, members of the incoming first-year class are required to read the book and attend the lecture. “God gives us all the capacity to make good  decisions,” said Fr. Martin during the lecture. He “helps to build us, calm us down and give us hope.”
