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

ACE = good for the soul

It's ACE graduation weekend here at ND. It's hard to believe that 5 years ago Marisa and I were sitting in the ACE 20's shoes...

So, we like Harry Potter...

Five years ago? Really? Time sure flies.

As I sat back and listened to the ACE 20 class speaker's address and watched their video, tears brimmed in my eyes as I thought of all the ACE teachers that have gone through the program over the past 20+ years. How many lives have been touched, students' and peers' alike? How much faith and love has been shared? Too many and too much to be counted or measured, that is certain.

Oh, ACE, you are so good for the soul...
