Osaretin Jonah was a forensic chemist. It seemed like
he had a promising future, professionally, in his country, Nigeria. But major
life changes forced him to rediscover his place in the world. The testimony of
American Jesuit missionaries who had known him in his hometown led him to
choose religious life as a Jesuit Brother.
Osaretin Jonah lives his vow of poverty through
obedience as he does not choose the places of mission, and takes up the task
assigned to him by the Superiors. Currently, he is the assistant to the
Provincial for Primary and Secondary Education. Does this action prevent him
from doing what he wants to do in order to help the poor?
does this testimony echo in your own experience?
