“Lessons for High School Graduates from St. Edith Stein” – Talk by Fr. Nathan

In this talk for the 2016 graduating class of Father Lacombe High School in Calgary, Fr. Nathan offered 4 lessons for the students to consider based on the life and teachings of St. Edith Stein. The 4 lessons that were offered to the students were: 1) The challenge to strive for excellence, 2) The call to challenge the prevalence of atheism in our culture, 3) The need for patience and perseverance to achieve one’s goals and ambitions and 4) The discovery that there is no greater love in this life than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Congratulations to the 2016 graduating class of Father Lacombe High School and may many blessings be upon them for many years to come.
