As we begin our Easter break, I am thankful for the abundance of graces each of us have in our lives: families, friends, health, opportunity, shelter, food, water and security.  To often we are mired in petty frustrations of daily life and we forget to reflect on and give thanks for the gifts we are blessed with.  Let us give thanks to the Lord for all of this.

Each of us is fortunate to be part of this Jesuit school community, unique in recognizing and celebrating God in the day-to-day of our lives and in the faith traditions of our sisters and brothers here at St. Bonaventure’s College.  Each of us, regardless of religion or faith tradition,  has been anointed by God, to be “Men and Women For and With Others,” and to proclaim a life acceptable to the Lord.

On behalf our faculty and staff, I wish you all a very grace-filled celebration of the Easter mysteries.

Tom McGrath
