Kaukauna man's trip takes him
to the poor

St. Ignatius started the tradition that all Jesuit novices
must undergo

Luke Hansen learned something about himself, the reliability of God and life for Mexicans in southwest border towns while on a 30-day pilgrimage.

The 24-year-old Kaukauna man and seven other Jesuit novices left their novitiate in St. Paul on separate journeys. They each had $35 and a one-way bus ticket to their first destination.

Jesuit novices have been required to make these 30-day pilgrimages as part of their formation since the 16th century because St. Ignatius Loyola, who founded the order, wanted "candidates to feel vulnerable and to rely on God to survive and move from place to place," Hansen said.

Hansen chose to travel both sides of the United States-Mexico border to get perspective on immigration issues and to test his Spanish. He said he prayed for the grace to better understand what it means to be a radical witness to Christ in the world.   Full story ...
