I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

A Little Wednesday Free Verse Poetry

Notre Dame, how I've missed thee.
I find my days here are always filled
With friendship, renewal, and prayer,
With love and with hope.
I am grateful for opportunities such as these
To spend time with people -
People who are passionate about education -
Catholic education.
Summer will soon draw to a close,
But my eyes must remain open,
And my heart must remain overflowing.
It does no good to only feel this way here -
The experience is meant to be shared,
Just as my pilgrimage experiences are meant to be shared.
"Don't come back unchanged,"
Someone said to me before my trip to the Holy Land.
This message rings true -
How have I changed,
Yes, that is an important question.
But, perhaps more importantly,
how will this change affect the way I interact with others?
We are all called by God,
And once we accept that call,
We can never be the same...
