“The will of God won’t ever lead you where the grace of God can’t keep you.”

<blockquote>Thanks for the learning and teaching of these past years (for it works both ways for both of us).  It’s always a struggle to know how to be loving, in the classroom or out, but I believe the answer lies in knowing and doing the Lord’s will.  Inasmuch as you’ve allowed me to share in that struggle — giving the ‘hardware’ and sharing the ‘software’ of life — a part of me goes with you, and you will always have a place in my heart and my prayers.  Pray for me in my struggles, too.  Stay close to Jesus and never forget:

The will of God won’t ever lead you
Where the grace of God can’t keep you.

May God lead you & love you,
Fr. L </blockquote>
