After Alumnae Weekend

This past weekend we welcomed close to 400 alumnae back to our lovely campus. This is always a wonderful weekend as we meet and greet our alums from as far back as 75 years since graduation.

One of our alums who came back from Boston to celebrate her 65th anniversary of graduation - hard to believe it has been that long - sent a lovely thank you note mentioning how great it was to hear younger young alumnae express admiration for the values which have remained with her for these 65 years.

I gave a little day of reflection for about 40 alumnae on Ten Qualities for Holy Living in the Salesian Tradition. I will share some of these key points with you this week - a few at a time.

Here is a great one: "roll with the punches!:" Pick your battles, Be steadfast on principle but flexible in detail, "Blessed are the hearts that bend", observes St. Francis de Sales, "for they shall never be broken."
