I’m back… with a speech!

I’m back… with a speech! August 31, 2019

Hello everyone,

If you’re a regular reader, you noticed that I took a long hiatus this year. During the break, I gave my full attention to the completion of my senior thesis and my graduation from Notre Dame. I also spent my summer at a rural Benedictine Abbey.

Me, suddenly a college graduate.

However, I really missed writing. So, I’ve decided to start blogging again.

What’s next?

I plan to focus much of my writing on mental health, spirituality, and wellbeing. But I’d love to hear from you! What topics would you like me to cover? What are your favorite posts? Do you have any troublesome questions? Email me at I don’t know how often I’ll be writing, as I am starting graduate school this fall. But, I promise to cover any topics you send my way.

To kick things off, I’m sharing with you my valedictory address from the 2019 Commencement Ceremony at Notre Dame. In it, I shared my view of the human person, outlined the purpose of education, and presented a challenge to my listeners.

Let me know what you think!
