It’s graduation season, and that means commencement speakers try to impart words of wisdom to graduates before they start the next phase of life. Wheeling Jesuit University welcomed Timothy Kesicki, SJ, president of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States, as its commencement speaker. Kesicki said:
The stories of failed jobs and mismatched careers are legion. But finding your vocation is not simply about a good fit in the workplace or nailing your first job interview. For St. Ignatius Loyola our work was as much about the difference that we made in the world as it was about our livelihood and personal satisfaction. For him, true satisfaction came from finding the unique gifts that God gave us and developing these to our fullest potential.
