Every year the feasts of Pentecost, the Blessed Trinity, and Corpus Christi, and the Sacred Heart arrive on the calendar very near to Commencement, week after week. I noticed that fact many, many years ago when I was a student myself. Those feast days were a sign summer was close at last! Then as a young Religion teacher, I missed the chance to talk with students about these feasts since they were either gone or on the way out. If still there due to an early Easter, they were not willing to humor me telling them how deeply the Spirit lived within them and how amazing – to believe in one God with three natures, yet united and connected as one Love.

We welcome this coming of spring time together. It is God’s gift to us. With joy, anxiety, with personal hope and needs, with the pressures of working in or attending college today and envisioning our future, with national and world concerns, with our longing for peace and desire for unity, we come together to share a prayer.

Much like us who find people who believe in us when we’re in any need! So let us be with Jesus these last few days before Easter, these last few minutes before the next thing today. Listen to him say, “No one can take you out of my hand, just as no one can take me out of the Father’s hand.” Am I in his hand? How does it feel to be in the Father’s hand? Who might need my hand today? During these days let us reach out for his hand .

When I first started college a lot of my schedule was made up of general education courses and I wasn’t too happy about that. “Why do I have to take an Intro to Psychology class?” I remember asking myself, “I’m a history major! I should be taking more history classes.” Then one day in class I made a connection between a topic we were discussing in one of my history classes with something I learned about in my psychology class and suddenly everything clicked. I was able to understand the topic so much better in my history class because I figured out what was happening to these people on a psychological level. I felt really smart that day.

I have been a student for the last 18 years. Preschool, elementary school, middle school, high school, college (Hey Rosemont!), and now, medical school. The anticipation and excitement surrounding back to school was, in many ways, my equivalent of Christmas morning. The new backpack! The new pens! The new notebooks! The new friends! Think of all the things I’ll learn this year! This passion for learning still exists, although now it is more like, “The new pens! The new highlighters! The packets of pathology and pharmacology that I will highlight! The crazy diseases I’ll learn about and include in a witty Facebook status that literally NO ONE understands!”.
