Third Place, Professional

Portrait of Fr. Robert Lawton, SJ
"Greatness is not principally a matter of prestige but a sign of how well we educate the young and how significantly we contribute to culture," says Fr. Lawton, who became the fourteenth president of Loyola Marymount University last summer. The university is on a bluff overlooking Los Angeles.

--Mr. Steven Heller, Los Angeles

Company Magazine Photo Contest

We asked creaders to send us photos that portrayed an aspect of the Ignatian world, and we were very pleased at the response. These 24 photos were selected from the nearly 200 we received.

We congratulate the photographers whose work appears on the these pages. We thank all of those who sent in photos. And we invite our readers to view a variety of the Society's works through many eyes.

Fortune teller near the cathedral

These young children play outside their house in Henequen, Dominican Republic. I kept a photo journal of my experience as a volunteer for Creighton University's Institute for Latin American Concern Program (ILAC), in which students and staff provide medical attention and education to rural villagers in the Dominican Republic; volunteers experience Ignatian spirituality in the context of Third World poverty.

Honorable Mention, Professional

Curious Brothers
Of the 400 people in Tan Binh, a leper village near Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, about 100 are Catholic. While I was visiting the Catholic chaplain, Fr. Huong Van Dat, two brothers peeked in to look at me, the foreigner. I was touched by the evident affection these brothers have for one another and the curiosity on their faces. In Vietnam, Jesuits work very closely with people such as lepers and ethnic minorities, who are among the poorest citizens in the country.

--Fr. Julio Giulietti, SJ, Center for Intercultural Education and Development, Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.
