Br. Rolando Dizon FSC (31 October 1944 - 25 April 2012) His is a story for the ages, a story that will be shared with generations of Lasallians. It is a beautiful story that will inspire and teach, that will make the stars reachable as well as the Hand of God, as He pulls us up from our falls that acclaim our humanity.
Lent begins with this invitation to strip away what is not necessary in our lives so that we can confront and embrace again the beauty and creative power of what lies inside us. In this encounter, it is likely that we will need to befriend and tame and confront as well the parts of our lives that are dark. As ministers and educators, this is an essential discipline we will need to exercise.
