Father Schall Continues to Teach His Readers

Fr. James Schall, S.J., had long been one of the leading lights at Georgetown University, and his retirement last December apparently hasn’t slowed down the 85-year-old Jesuit one bit.

The National Catholic Register reports that while he won’t be back in the lecture halls at Georgetown, Fr. Schall is hardly retired. The author of numerous classics including Another Sort of Learning and What Is God Like? is still writing regularly and has three books coming out this year. And he is still captivating audiences.

Pressed to explain how he maintains his output, Father Schall told the Register that his “daily routine is exactly like it has been all my life: Get up; say Mass and [the Divine] Office; go to meals; shoot the breeze; read some more; do what I have to do; and go to bed.

“The only difference in Georgetown was that I was preparing class all the time.”

His arrival at the Jesuit retirement home has been a homecoming of sorts, and he has reclaimed friendships from his early days as a Jesuit novice.
