A future brighter than any past

Paulist seminarians in habits! [I lifted this photo off Facebook, from an album put up by Tony M, a (non-Paulist) seminarian acquaintance.]

It's the 150th anniversary of the Missionary Society of St. Paul this year. The slogan for the year is from the writings of Fr. Hecker, "A future brighter than any past ... "

I am certain many of my former confrères will disagree (and probably thank the stars that I am no longer with them :)), but this photo from the Papal Mass in DC last week, fills me with hope that Fr. Hecker's vision will indeed perdure...
