  • Rockhurst University Jesuits Reflect on Anniversary of Jesuit Martyrs | Ignatian Solidarity Network
    of every Salvadoran citizen Almost as impressive as the horrific news from San Salvador was the news that right away formed Jesuits from all over the world were writing to their provincial superiors saying simply Send me That evening at our community mass along with prayers for the martyrs for their murderers and for the nation of El Salvador one of the brethren read from Campion s Brag St Edmund Campion s message to the Privy Council of Elizabeth I written as he prepared for his own martyrdom The document is at once a plea for discourse and reconciliation and a challenge We Jesuits are determined never to give you over but either to win you heaven or to die upon your pikes And touching our Society be it known to you that we have made a league all the Jesuits in the world whose succession and multitude must overreach all the practice of England cheerfully to carry the cross you shall lay upon us and never to despair your recovery while we have a man left to enjoy your Tyburn or to be racked with your torments or consumed with your prisons To this day it humbles me that Jesuits and their companions should be counted among the many thousands of Salvadorans who have been tortured or murdered by those allied sadly with the forces of darkness This is the Society of Jesus at her best Not seeking martyrdom as a thing to be desired for its own sake but ready in every sense to give all for Christ and for the Gospel of love and justice Father Dirk Dunfee S J was born in Pasadena California He studied philosophy at Claremont McKenna College and law at Duke University after which he practiced law in Tulsa Oklahoma He entered the Society of Jesus in 1987 Ordained in 1997 he has served in several parishes including his beloved St Francis Xavier parish in Kansas City In 2009 he graduated from Oregon Health Science University s Family Nurse Practitioner program For five years he provided health care in Kansas City Kansas working at a clinic that serves the uninsured and underinsured He was recently reassigned to Regis University in Denver where he teaches in the nursing school and is a project leader with Regis Cultivate Health initiative In November of 1989 I was a freshman at Saint Louis University Still new to college life and having never been part of the Jesuit educational network I did not yet know who the Jesuits were or what they did They were a mystery to me But the 16th of that month changed everything The martyrs opened my eyes and my heart I remember attending a candle light vigil on the steps outside the College Church and as we recalled the words of the theologian Tertullian who said The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church the candles at that vigil were for me a light of clarity in my own vocation The martyrs have been a source of inspiration for me because their life example and witness of faith tell us something of what it means to be committed to both Heaven and Earth To me they represent the bridge between our broken world and the celestial court of the divine Their lives teach us about what it means to bring about the Kingdom of God in our world today We Jesuits are teachers preachers and laborers We hear confessions give retreats and perform sacramental ministries But if our words and actions say something of the Gospel so must our lives To me the Salvadoran martyrs are a powerful reminder of what St Ignatius says in the Spiritual Exercises love is greater in deeds than it is in words And so today we ask ourselves Is there injustice in our world Does violence threaten the fabric of social stability Are the poor trampled under the duress of economic progress Do impoverished nations have a voice in the international arena Not only are the Salvadoran martyrs relevant today they are poignant figures who loom large in the landscape of our faith They bear the faces of Oscar Romero Dorothy Kazel Ita Ford Maura Clarke Jean Donovan Rutilio Grande the women and children of El Mozote and so many more who have died both past and present in the struggle for human dignity where God is most present and evermore glorified Fr D Scott Hendrickson S J is a professor of Spanish at Loyola University in Chicago He entered the Jesuit order in 1997 and was ordained a priest in 2008 As a Jesuit he has worked and studied in Honduras Spain and the Dominican Republic From 2002 to 2005 he taught Spanish language literature and culture at Rockhurst University and led immersion trips and study abroad programs to Guatemala Spain and France Juan Moreno S J was one of the six Jesuit martyrs of Salvador I met him in the Fall of 1962 when I came to the Jesuit School of Theology in St Mary s KS He had arrived there a year earlier to begin his four years of theology with his ordination to the priesthood slated for 1964 The Jesuit Rector wanted Juan and several other Jesuits who had come from various countries of the world to meet a typical USA family I had taught at the Jesuit High of Wichita Chaplain Kapaun Memorial from 1959 62 and knew many families there So the Rector asked me to drive Juan and 3 other Jesuits to Wichita and spend a little time there We left St Mary s on a Fall morning and arrived in Wichita in the early afternoon The families who had agreed to be hosts picked up the 4 Jesuit visitors Each Jesuit had a host family where he would stay until Wednesday morning with opportunity to ask them about anything they were wondering about in this country In turn the hosts could ask the Jesuits about
