True Domer

| Monday, November 9, 2015

One Saturday afternoon, I found myself a little south of the stadium with thousands upon thousands of other Domers when I encountered an elderly gentleman near Mendoza who asked for directions to the Grotto.
This gentleman was having a hard time following my directions so I walked with him a bit and then pointed him toward the basilica once we got close to O’Shag. He thanked me and assured me that he could make it from there. I wasn’t so sure so I watched as he headed in the right direction. A couple young men were winding down a concession stand near by and one of them was standing close enough to overhear.
I observed the young man offer to walk with the elderly gentleman to the Grotto and then did so.
What an amazing display of faith and cooperation by one of our students.
It is nothing short of a miracle to be able to see the Dome every day.
