"The God of Tough Places, the Lord of Burnt Men"

On the same day the school received a letter from the Passionsits, it also received Fr. Richard Frechette's new book about his work in Haiti.  Both are interesting reads.  I especially enjoyed Fr. Rick's opening thoughts in his book about the resilience of life.  He makes referencee to the fighting spirit of the salmon and the resilience of the leaves of deciduous trees. The boys of Saint David's School, under the leadership of our Student Council chose Haiti relief as the focus of their efforts this year.  Each year the graduating class with the student council choose a charity to support.  Their efforts were obviously appreciated and deeply beneficial to the work of the Passionists' and to the people of Haiti.
