Reverend Thomas J. Donnelly, S. J. Reverend Francis P. Callan, S. J.
Solemn, hushed, expectant, we entered
Chapel for the first day of our Retreat.
Solemn-because we realized that for three
days we were to be alone with our God, hushed
-for only in the depths of our own souls
could we find the silence wherewith to hear the
Lord speak to us, expectant-as we waited to
see what this great experience would really
mean to each of us, not as a group but as an
individual soul seeking the end for which it
We Seniors with the Juniors in the Chapel
went through our day starting with Holy Mass,
conferences, stations, rosary devotions, and
culminating in Benediction. Freshmen and
Sophomores were also having retreat at the
same time in the auditorium, now trans-
formed into a chapel where Christ in the
Blessed Sacrament found another tabernacle
for the three days of the retreat.
Our retreat was a grand success but how
could it have been Otherwise with such retreat
masters? Our Father Donnelly, president of
John Carroll University, and the younger gen-
erations' Father Callan of St. Ignatius Hig
School, put into each of these short days al
the important doctrines of our Religion. They-
made our faith really live and it was so easy t
see how God figures in our lives after it wa
There were many things we learned fro
our retreat, but these we want to remembe
especially. We're in business with the Lord,
building a road-a long, straight highway
leading directly to God, with the Ten Com-
mandments as signposts to guide us and make
certain our way. Goodness is inherent in
man's nature, and we have all the liberties of
a child of God. That means that the more ioy
we know, the holier we are. Though we can't
evade the shadow of the Cross in our lives, we
can bear it with more patience and strength
if we take as our model Him who carried the
Cross of the World. l
,Everything we do must be determined by
what God wants. Once we resign our wills
to His, everything is comparatively simple. lf

We will not soon forget these sentinels
of patience, courage, guidance and right
who have led us through the bewildering
maze of school days up to the door that
leads to a new life-a life that will be
richer, fuller and more Christian for their
influence. All the trite amenities that
roll so glibly off one's tongue would be
out of place here--our debt is far more
than a material one, it has a spiritual
tenor, too. Through their help, their in-
spiration, their example we have learned
not to fear to venture into the unknown.
They have taught us to go "out into the
darkness and put our hand into the hand
of God-that shall be for us better than
a light and safer than a known way."

mercy of God--He made it just so we would

fortunate as we. Henceforth our efforts will

lt was a beautiful and inspiring retreat. As
it closed we were all left with the thought
that it had opened to us a new and loftier
vision of goodness. Our modern, complex
philosophies of life are taboo. Our newer
mode of life will be sweeter, simpler, more
Christ-like, built on the three standards of
Praise, Love, and Service of God.
