Author, Jesuit and media man

On Mar. 4, Boston College will host an evening with author Rev. James Martin, SJ, whose media appearances on NPR, “The O’Reilly Factor” and “The Colbert Report,” among many others, have made him one of the most recognizable Jesuits in America. Fr. Martin will talk about his best-selling book The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything: A Spirituality for Real Life. He will translate the insights of St. Ignatius of Loyola for a modern audience, revealing how people can find God and how God can find people in the real world of work, love, suffering, decisions, prayer, and friendship.
The 7:00 p.m. event, which is free and open to the public, will be held in Robsham Theater and is sponsored by Provincial Myles N. Sheehan, SJ, and the New England Province of Jesuits, in partnership with the Boston College Church in the 21st Century Center and BC School of Theology and Ministry. Space is limited and RSVPs are requested at kostiguy@sjnen.org.
Fr. Martin is a culture editor of America magazine and the author of several other books, including My Life with the Saints, A Jesuit Off-Broadway and the forthcoming Between Heaven and Mirth: Why Joy, Humor, and Laughter Are at the Heart of the Spiritual Life. He has written for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, Huffington Post, O Magazine and Slate, among others.
