Herbert Keller is a Jesuit from the United States who
teaches theology and works in pastoral ministry at Scranton Preparatory School in Pennsylvania. Throughout his
apostolic life in the Society of Jesus, he has served in the field of education
at all levels.
When he reflects on the vow of poverty, he defines it
as the realisation that his time is not his own. He offers his time to those
entrusted to him, to those who need him. His vow of poverty is also nourished
by his memories of the words and actions of two former Superiors General, Fr.
Pedro Arrupe and Fr. Adolfo Nicolás. Both of them, at the end of their lives, surrendered
themselves entirely in the hands of the Lord.
