    one of the Jesuits mentioned in the article is Br Guy Consolmagno, astronomer and science popularizer (got the Carl Sagan Medal for that); here’s a great Amazon review of one of his books, from his…dad!

      That’s brilliant! His reply to an enquiry as to why he bought the book that his son wrote is hilarious.
      ‘I bought the book between Guy’s visits. When I passed ninety I stopped waiting for things.’
      Joe Consolmagno

    The commune I lived in when I was at Marquette Univ. was organized by the Jesuits, who had a house of their own next door. One of them was Fr. Sauve, the chairman of the math department.
