For the greater glory

"Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam." ~ St. Ignatius of Loyola

Each time I return to Marquette, I instantly feel a familiar sense of faith and inspiration. St. Joan of Arc chapel was my sanctuary for nine years -- a warm, quiet place to put away my books and concerns and end each day in grateful reflection. It has been twenty-two years since I graduated (for the third time!), yet even now, whenever I feel frustrated, I try to remember that the greatest lesson I learned here was to work hard to make a difference, to "Be the Difference," not for myself, but for the greater glory.
