Fr. Glenn Mueller’s Reflection on 60 Years as a Jesuit
It’s been a good run. I consider God’s invitation to be a Jesuit and a priest, my loving family and a deep trust In God to be the best gifts the Lord has given me. The Jesuits strengthened and clarified the values I learned from my parents, taught me practical ways to find God in the ordinary stuff of life, and most importantly, helped me hear the Lord’s invitation to a deeper companionship. Through patience and lots of love, the people I have known and encountered taught me the importance of being a caring and loving priest who could help everyone know that God loves us just as we are. Lots to be thankful for. God is Good!!
