Br. Paul Montero is not only a current member of our general administration, living in Rome between his travels all over the world. He is also my former high school principal and a long-time friend. Because he is such a globe-trotter, I had not seen him in a few years, but as always, seeing him was a great grace of Brotherhood. Even as a little kid, Paul made a big impression on me - he knew my name, knew my family, and was not just concerned about running the school: he loved us students.
Both of these guys are just Brothers' Brothers - no baloney, just men who love the Institute and have given their lives to making it work better. Ametur Cor Jesu, Brothers, and happy anniversary.
