Love on the rocks

Arctic explorer and photographer Father Bernard Hubbard S.J., the "Glacier Priest," reads his breviary while overlooking the Pacific Ocean outside Santa Clara University in October 1953. Photo by Margaret Bourke-White.

Full-size photo here.

More Jesuit photos from the Life archive here. Many of the images are quite stunning, including some, also from Bourke-White's 1953 photo essay, that feature a robed Byzantine-rite Jesuit priest.

If you're wondering how it got to be Society of Jesus week in these parts, this is The Dawn Patrol's brain on Father Daniel A. Lord S.J..
