In a recent post for The Daily Beast, Jon Favreau ’03, former chief speechwriter for President Obama, shares his admiration for Pope Francis’s dedication and servitude for the evolving world, which he connects to the Jesuit education he received at Holy Cross.
“At Holy Cross, I experienced a Catholicism that was about service, compassion, and love,” he says of his alma mater. “In both the classroom and the chapel, the professors and priests at Holy Cross challenged us to think about how we could help change the social, political, and economic structures that contributed to the persistent poverty and inequality that so many of us witnessed just beyond our college gates.”
