Evening Prayer 5.27.15, Bertha & Ethelbert of Kent, 616

Spend a few minutes to end the day focused on God and His will

The Daily Office

“But when this son of yours came back, who has devoured your property with prostitutes, you killed the fatted calf for him!”

Fr. John LoSchiavo has died, the longtime faculty member, administrator and president of the University of San Francisco. He was best known nationally for shutting down the school’s basketball program after a series of scandals. The Dons had won two national college basketball championships in the 1950s, remarkable for a small school, and had returned to national prominence 20 years later, when recruiting violations and illegal payments to players kept popping up in headlines. Fr. Lo didn’t wait for the sport’s governing body to act; he pulled the plug himself, suspending the team for three years and limiting recruiting to nearby states. A native of San Francisco, he was an all-city player himself in high school, but he would not have his Catholic college’s ethics and reputation besmirched. (University photo) Fr.

Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; let the whole earth tremble before the Holy One.
