Signs of the Times?

The College where I work (it’s sponsored by my monastery) is in the midst of its annual fund appeal. They are seeking 100% participation of all who work here.

I made a very modest donation. It certainly does not cover the cost of

  • printing special post-it pads
  • student worker wages to hand-write hundreds of messages
  • more wages to post them on walls, stairs, floors all over campus
  • janitor wages to clean them up tomorrow
  • frequent painting of smudgy walls

Paradox: the Benedictine value emphasized this year is Stewardship.
