A Catholic education creates diversity. It brings people together who are passionate about just about any issue regarding social justice, fosters debate about abortion and gay marriage, and teaches people to listen to each other, to expand their minds, to not judge, and to go into the world with the aim of improving it.
When I die, I want you to not let a rabbi near me. I want you to put my body on this bed, and I want you to push it out onto the Monongahela River and let it float. I want you to set fire to some arrows, take an archer’s bow, and aim them at me. I want you to send me to Valhalla.
