A story for Year of the Priest

 |  NCR Today

Fr. James Reuter marked a diamond anniversary Tuesday: He made his first vows in the Society of Jesus 75 years ago. Sixty-nine of those years, he spent in the Philippines as a teacher, playwright, writer, coach, chaplain.

Journalists remember him as spokesman for the Philippine bishops.

He described his parish as the "stage, radio, printing press, shooting lot, dressing room, director’s booth, the theater."
