This retreat was given at the Demontreville Jesuit Retreat House near Lake Elmo, Minnesota, January 28-31, 2010. |I was born and raised in Milwaukee, the third of four children of Richard and Mary Jane Kroll. I graduated from St. Eugene grade school in 1979 and from Marquette University High School in1983. I received a B.S. degree from Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service in 1987, and entered the Society of Jesus that fall. |After pronouncing first vows in St. Paul, MN in 1989 and spending one year in the Jesuit Humanities Program at Creighton University in Omaha, I completed three years of philosophy and theology studies at Centre Sèvres, the Jesuit school in Paris. I returned to Marquette High for three years of full-time ministry before finishing a Master of Divinity degree (M.Div.) in 1999 at Weston Jesuit in Cambridge, MA. That summer I was ordained a priest, and then spent another five years at Marquette High as a teacher and coach. |I completed the final stage of Jesuit formation (tertianship) in Sydney, Australia in 2005, pronouncing final vows in 2006. I spent two years as a pastor on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation from 2005-07, before coming to Demontreville retreat house as associate director in the fall of 2007. I enjoy all racket sports, especially tennis and squash.||Talk # 1 A Vacation with the Lord ( Handouts: One; Two; Three)|Talk # 2 “O My God!” ( Handout) |Talk # 3 Our Essential Purpose ( Handout)|Talk # 4 “I’m OK, You’re OK” (But Not Entirely)|Talk # 5 The Devil Didn’t Make Me Do It|Talk # 6 To Err Is Human; To Forgive, Divine ( Handout)|Talk # 7 Here Comes the Son ( Handout)|Talk # 8 Who Do You Say That I Am?|Talk # 9 Doctor of Soul: Jesus Heals ( Handout)|Talk # 10 No Greater Love|Talk # 11 Death, Where Is Thy Sting?
