    Jack Costello SJ

    Father Jack Costello SJ came to Theology on Tap March 29 and spoke on “Want to do justice? First fall in love.”

    He invited his listeners to forget about labels — “We have our sense of where real shadows lie in the areas of gender, the environment and economics.” He directed them to look past the cynicism that comes with trying to gain happiness from driving SUV’s. “Life is about being in love and caring for people,” he said, “Bread for my neighbour is spiritual.”

He receives an herbal remedy from the chief’s sister for his flu and recovers. When he thanks Kwegsi at the band office the next day, the chief laughs and says to the young people with him, “ We never learn. For 500 years when they get sick, we give them medicine!”
