He addressed the graduating class of 2007 at Catholic University with these words.
“When it comes to faith, I’ve taken my own journey. You will have to take your own. But here’s what I know. Faith is as natural as the air we breathe. Religion is not an opiate, just the opposite. It is the introduction to the ultimate extreme sport. There is nothing that you can imagine that God cannot trump.
As Paul said “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” And once you realize that there is something greater than you out there, and then you have to decide, “Do I acknowledge it and do I act upon it?” You have to at some point surrender yourself. And there is nothing worthwhile in your life that will not at some point require an act of submission.”
Spoken like a true Catholic.
Eternal rest grant him O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him,
may his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God,
rest in peace.
