the jesuits still love adrienne

A while back, I wrote about how more and more Jesuits are reading Adrienne. They are also writing about her too. Fr. John O'Brien, S.J., has some good introductory words about Adrienne for his blog's readers.

I particularly like this insight:

"Adrienne’s mystical insights all have an Ignatian bent, and are strongly centered on the desire to give oneself radically to follow Christ. ... But it is the humble figure of Mary that grounds Adrienne’s writing in the day-to-day world of the here and now."

Yes, truly Mary helps us live radically in her son and thereby also helping us articulate that living in Christ in the world here and now.
