Karl Barth, in an often quoted sentence, said we should preach with the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other. I would add that this might also be a helpful way to pray. With these pages, I am in reality stretching the newspap er, which covers events of the day, to include the newspages, the headlines of t he past. For every day of the year, a series of interesting and/or important dates are l isted under three categories, of Christianity-Religion, History, and Jesuit. Each and every family has a series of special dates, anniversaries, celebration, and memories of birth and death. So too does the Christian family, so the Ameri can and African family, so the Jesuit family. To use a favorite word of Anthony de Mello, these dates serve to help one grow in awareness, to deepen one s sense of Church history, cultural history, and Jesu it history. It may help in the preparation of liturgies, it affords food for p rivate prayer and reflection, and it may be a way into more interesting conversa tion. How to use this book? I suggest that for perhaps three minutes every morning, one reads the page of the day, seeing what strikes one. Gratitude, wonder, or p etition may be the response elicited. In any case, this brief daily reading and reflection should broaden and expand our vision, to increase our awareness of wh o we are and where we come from. One of my concerns is a loss of a sense of history - history of the Church and m ore particularly, loss of the sense of the history of the Society of Jesus. And there is a double problem too - as the Society is growing fastest in Asia, Afri ca - these are precisely areas where the Society is new, areas where the tradi tion has been other than Western. So it is especially difficult for Jesuits in those areas to know and to feel at home with Jesuit history. This calendar is one small way to move in the direction of awareness of our history. Many Jesuits recall hearing the Fasti Breviores and the Roman Martyrology read a t table, This no longer takes place. As I reread the Fasti Breviores, I see t hat it conveys and impressive sense of mission, as Jesuit head to new and unexpl ored places, many of them giving their lives. But the Fasti Breviores was publi shed in 1910. I have included many key dates in the Society of Jesus since the n. It seems to me that many young Jesuits could benefit from familiarity with t he great and not so great men and events of Jesuit history. I do list the official feast days for the American Church and for the Society of Jesus - of course this does not replace the official Ordo. I do not list the movable church feasts such as Easter or the first Sunday of Advent. Nor mov able secular feasts such as Thanksgiving or Presidents day These vary from year to year do not need to be put on a more permanent calendar. I include also elements from the Roman Martyrology, (both the old and ne w editions) sometimes humorous and sometimes more serious. These includes celebr ations for biblical figures such as Moses, Abraham, Job, Mary of Cleopas, and La zarus, etc. In accord with the Jesuit ordo these men and women of the Bible mi ght be celebrated at the Eucharistic liturgy under certain conditions. Obviously the book of dates could be embellished and expanded with more on the e

vents listed, with quotations, reflections for each day of the year. One migh t say this is basically no frills - just the facts. But to its advantage, it is a calendar that is helpful not just for one year, 2004 or 2005, but for every year - even as it can be added onto as major world and church events continue to unfold. As patron of this book of dates, I suggest the Jesuit, Blessed Peter Favre. Why ? He has not left many writings, but central to what we have of Favre is his Me morial or diary. Almost every entry begins with the saint of the day - and some special prayer reflection concerning that saint, his or her example, protection . In addition Favre prayerfully notes the anniversary of the death of his moth er, and notes the anniversary of his own ordination. These remembrances stir hi m to prayer - prayer of gratitude, prayer for the repose of the soul. It is characteristic of Favre that every event, present, but also past, pointed him to God and to prayer. He was one of the first companions of St. Ignatius, deeply influenced by the spirituiality of Ignatius - that of finding and servin g God in all things. One beautiful example of Favre s prayerful reflection is found on the feast of Al l Saints day. Here he shows his belief in the communion of saints, in the saints in heaven as living realities, not as dead. On the Feast of All Saints I felt a great desire that this feast and solemn celebration on earth in memory of all the heavenly host might have on that day a corresponding celebration in heaven, with mercy and compassion, in memory of all the inhabitants of this world and especially of those who are sinners. I desired the celebration to be such that not a being on earth, not a soul in purgatory would go unremembered in heaven by the saints and that the souls in purgatory would do the same.... Then, in the following day, All Souls Day, Favre writes: I thought of my father, my mother, and my relatives, my deceased brethren in the Society, our benefactors, and the relatives of all my brothers. St. Ignatius speaks of finding and serving God in all things. The tradition of the church, the rich traditions of many cultures, and the tradition of the Soci ety of Jesus, all provide events, holy persons, where God has been present and a ctive, where the God who speaks today can also be found. This book tries to poi nt us, on a daily basis, to some of these events and persons. It provides food for thought and food for prayerful reflection. The turn of the year, the celebration of a new century or the New Millennium poi nt to the power of dates. They provide opportunities or occasions to celebrate, to look back and to look ahead. The choice of persons, events, necessarily reflects my own interests which would include New York, Africa/Nigeria, music, poetry, sports, ecumenism, and above all, Jesuit history. In one way this book is an invitation for the reader to ad d his or her own special family dates, perhaps at the bottom of each page. It w ould be appropriate to add one s own special dates from one s particular family, birthdays, major events, etc. So too, members of a particular Jesuit provinc e could add the readily available anniversaries the deaths of Jesuits of that Province In amassing such data, there are bound to be omissions and inaccuracies . It is difficiult to find exact or consistent dates for some events. Feedb ack is most welcome. With computer disks, this could easily be corrected and

modified. Peter Schineller, S.J.
