S.J.; Mark Mossa
Number of pages: 151
If you are young (or young only in heart!) and attempting to discover who you are meant to be, Fr. Mark Mossa can help you find the ways God is already in your life. Mossa provides an honest and entertaining account of how he, as a younger adult, now a Jesuit priest, attempts to find God's will for his life. Mossa's friends tell him that he has a talent for making weird (they politely say different) connections. He responds that images, lyrics, and repeatedly quoted lines from popular culture stick with us because they connect with something deep down inside of us and say something meaningful about our human experience.
We need only take some time to reflect on our experience—and that is what Mark Mossa helps us to do—and we'll see that God has already been trying to communicate with us in unexpected and surprising ways. Maybe even weird ways!
Mark Mossa, S.J., spent his early adult years trying to figure out where God wanted him. At 27 he finally realized he was already there. Two years later he became a Jesuit and now he finds himself a priest. In the process, he learned a few things, much of it from his ministry with youth and young adults in the northeast and southern United States. The rest he learned through movies, music, poetry, prayer, and from the many amazing people he has had the privilege to serve and live with, before and after his “leap” to Jesuit life. He currently studies and teaches theology at Fordham University in the Bronx, and occasionally updates his blog, “GODsTALKed: Pursuits of a Hyphenated Priest.”
