Holy Cross Jubilee

Today marks the Jubilee Celebration for a number of Holy Cross religious. Their combined years of vowed and priestly life are an inspiration for all of us who strive to serve the Lord.

As disciples of Jesus we stand side by side with all people. Like them we are burdened by the same struggles and beset by the same weaknesses; like them we are made new by the same Lord's love; like them we hope for a world where justice and love prevail. Thus, wherever through its superiors the congregation sends us we go as educators in the faith to those whose lot we share, supporting men and women of grace and goodwill everywhere in their efforts to form communities of the coming kingdom. --- Constitutions of the Congregation of Holy Cross

With hearty congratulations to Fr Joseph Long, who was my Latin teacher at Notre Dame High School when I was there from 1966-1970. I shall always remember him as a highly dedicated teacher and accomplished classicist who put his profession first above all else.
