When I was in tertianship in Australia in 2008 I lived with a larger-than-life, speed-talking older Australian Jesuit named Emmet Costello. He'd worked in parishes and high schools, and he seemed to be a friend to queens and princes; he'd speak of recent conversations with major Australian politicians, bishops and billionaires.
While I was there I had the opportunity to interview Emmet on video. He died last week, and looking back through the videos I was struck by his great faith and relentless focus on love and Jesus.
Below you can find the videos I did with him. They're each between a minute and two minutes. They might take more than one listen to understand; he really does have a great Australian accent.
But may they nourish your spirit as his words did that of many others.
