A Life's Work

Monday, Jul. 19, 2010

Working daily and directly with Fr. Paul Locatelli, it was impossible not to feel his passion for Santa Clara University and the potential its students had to change the world. He had a vision that energized, focused, and drove so much of what he did. Graduates - and even current students - could and should pay attention to injustice and use their education and best instincts to overcome it. He lived and breathed a world view that informed so much of what he did and inspired commitment in others. I will always treasure his earnest smile, his way of reaching out to people, and his unfailing belief that the world can be a better place if we all work consistently toward that vision.
