|Very Reverend Timothy P. Kesicki, S.J.|
Sacred Heart Schools Preparatory in Atherton, California held their One Hundred and Fifteenth Commencement Exercises on Friday, May 24, 2013. The Very Reverend Timothy P. Kesicki, S.J. currently serving as the provincial of the Chicago-Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus gave a moving Invocation prior to the Feast day of the Society of the Sacred Heart Foundress, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat. Fr. Kesicki's most memorable Invocation will long be remembered by the 2013 graduates.
Fr. Kesicki asked the graduates to imagine what it would be like if Madeleine Sophie were with us now. "Would she have the iPhone 5? Would she be tweeting pithy little aphorisms? Would Madeleine Sophie be sporting Gator pride and high five the graduates as they walked in the procession?"
Fr. Kesicki concluded his remarks by asking the graduates to give witness to St. Madeleine Sophie Barat's belief that 'your example, even more than your words, will be an eloquent lesson to the world' and "may that example further Sacred Heart's noble mission to form leaders who love God and serve others."
Fr. Timothy P. Kesicki, S.J. was recently named the New President of the Jesuit Conference of the Society of Jesus and he will assume his new position August 1, 2014.
