“We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labour pains until now; . . . For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what is seen? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.“ (Rom. 8:22-25)
…a blog about Jesuit Priest, James Profit S.J., as he undergoes treatment for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer.
He is the Executive Director of “The Ignatius Jesuit Centre” in Guelph, Canada. The Centre, a ministry of the Jesuits, encompasses such as: a Retreat House, an Ecology Project, Ignatius Farm Community Shared Agriculture, an organic farm, and a Plant an Old Growth Forest project.
Previously, he has served in Jamaica and in the First Nations at Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island.
He is originally from Prince Edward Island. Before entering the Jesuits, he earned his degree in agriculture, specializing in horticulture from the University of Guelph.
He is a passionate ecologist.
He was diagnosed with the cancer in late August of 2011. He shared the news with us – the Jesuit Community and the Ignatius Jesuit Centre family – on September 01, 2011.
