The Story of Notre Dame
Brother Aidan's Extracts


"It is not easy to see the poetry of college life while you are yet a freshman -- aye, or even a senior. The good begin to realize it on commencement morning, but it may be years and scores of years before the vision bursts upon him. The pictures of Raphael were more beautiful a century after he made his last brush stroke than when they leaped, glowing and quivering on his canvas."
