Jesuit Ordinations at Fordham

Here is a slideshow of some beautiful photos from the Jesuit Ordination Mass, which was celebrated at Fordham University Chapel last weekend.  His Eminence, Edward Cardinal Egan ordained three Jesuits, in the presence of over 240 concelebrants, not to mention the ordinands' brother Jesuits, and their friends and family.  America readers may be especially interested in the photos of Matt Malone, S.J., our soon-to-be-new editor in chief.  Other Jesuit ordination photos can be found on The Jesuit Conference's Facebook page here. Ad multos annos to all the new priests across the country. 

James Martin, SJ
