Notre Dame, Our Mother,God bestowed upon Father Theodore Hesburgh a great intellect and a compassionate heart, and he used it to strengthen your University and mend the world. As a priest and as a leader, he lifted up the lowly and proclaimed the greatness of the Lord in all things. We are grateful because our lives have been touched by his hope and faithfulness; we are thankful to have witnessed and shared his life’s work to love God and humanity. With him, we “ask again and again for wisdom and courage, the light to see and the strength do to what the times demand and the richness of our heritage promises.” Take Father Ted into your motherly embrace, which is tender, strong, and true; cloak him with your glory’s mantle. May he rest in the peace of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
