Netflix’s new documentary “Seaspiracy” has lots of problems. A Jesuit marine biologist offers his take.
I stopped drinking during the last semester of my regency, a stage of Jesuit formation where we work in a Jesuit institution. My last binge led me to see how my story with alcohol was going to end. If I kept on drinking, I would have left the Jesuits and continued deteriorating. In this “moment of clarity,” I decided that I needed to stop drinking in order to live. Though I am writing this anonymously, my story is a truth I carry with me. I am a Jesuit, and I am an alcoholic.
Jesus is Risen! Alleluia! Today we celebrate the triumph of the resurrection over sin and death.
