My dear Graduates,
The theme of this year's yearbook is both intriguing and inspiring. Certainly a college
education should ever be a blending of both tradition and progress. We say that the
heart of every campus is its library where treasured are the lasting thoughts of centuries.
Most writings are related to the problems of the day and represent man's best considered
solutions at the time. Since human problems do not change much from century to cen-
tury, when those manuscripts reflect right reason and flow from an intellectual and
spiritual harmony, they are even today pearls of real wisdom. Included therein is our
Christian heritage, most ancient and most glorious.
During your college days, guided by the analyses and syntheses proffered by your
professors, you were in a position to utilize the sagacity of tradition as a foundation
on which to erect your philosophy of life. As college graduates, your vision and mo-
mentum are ever forward and upward into the future.
Early in your younger lives you first met your theme when you discovered that your
textbooks-mirrors of tradition-soon become antiquated, and so it became increasing-
ly evident to you that knowledge of the past alone was not enough. The necessity of
remolding and developing old ideas into new combinations and even totally new con-
cepts became the crux of your education and preparation for life.
As graduates you are prepared for leadership through intellectual, moral and cultural
excellence to take up responsibility in the milieu in which you will live. To be success-
ful, there must be a concerted effort to preserve the integrity and the disinterestedness
of truth, garnered from centuries of mature thought-in the light of which you can pro-
gress confidently into future fulfillment.
Such is God's plan. To each of us He gives a nascent potential for greatness, and
grants us a lifetime in which to bring it to flower. Life is progress toward our ulti-
mate union with our Creator, rendering back to Him the actualized potential-the fruit
of our progress through tradition into the newness of tomorrow.
May your hours of wrestling with the traditional truth of yesteryear, blessed and
augmented by the Divine benediction, yield the satisfying progress of a glorious God-
Very Reverend Raymond A. Roesch, S.M.
