Practice and Presence: Keeping body and soul together
Rev. Dr. David DeMarco is a physician priest — and a priest physician. His work includes saying Mass on the weekends, helping with spiritual direction, practicing medicine, and teaching medical students. According to DeMarco, Ignatian spirituality makes it easy to combine practicing medicine, living the religious life in community, and serving as a priest — at least in theory. In practice it's a lot more difficult.
