Regis Student Examines Spiritual Topics in New Podcast

“Talking With Francky” Considers Faith & Spirituality Through an Ignatian Lens

 

Jean Francky Guerrier is a Haitian Jesuit currently studying at Regis College. In addition to his theological studies, Francky is interning with Salt and Light Media and recently started his very own podcast. He’s in good company – one of the apostolates operated by his fellow Jesuits in Haiti is a radio station, Radio-Manrèse.

In the podcast’s second episode, Francky spoke with our very own Professor Gordon A. Rixon, SJ, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, about the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. They also discussed links between the Exercises and Laudato Si’, the 2015 papal encyclical on integral ecology.
