|Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C.|
With these daily words of prayer, Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., implored the Holy Spirit to fill the hearts of thefaithful and to kindle in us the fire of God’s love. Last night, at theage of 97 and after 71 years of priestly ministry in the Congregation of HolyCross, Father Ted has gone home to the Lord.
(from statement of Notre Dame President Rev. John Jenkins, C.S.C.)
Personal note: Fr. Ted was a Catholic priest who brought together in one special man the identity of the American Catholic. In the mid 1970's, during late night strolls on the campus, I recall often seeing the light from his office under the Golden Dome. Working, studying, praying, he was ever dedicated to the service of God, Country and Notre Dame.

|Palm Sunday, outside the Basilica of the Blessed Sacrament, Sacramento, California|
(C) 2013 On Being Roman Catholic in America
For Catholics, the focus of the entire year is found in Holy Week, or what is sometimes referred to as "the Great Week"--as we re-live the Passion of Our Lord, Jesus Christ and ponder the power of unconditional love and utter freedom found in obedience to the will of the Father.
Pater, si non potest hic calix transire, nisi ibam illum: fiat voluntas tua. (Luke 22:42)
