Santorum at Ave Maria – a small voice resonates

It’s normal to wonder if anyone is paying attention. As humans, our lives don’t seem to have meaning absent our communications and  interactions with others. And as Christians, the influence our own lives have on others is of great import; our salvation in some way depends on whether we are channels for and bearers of His love.  This goal is summed up in the lyrics of the alma mater song for Ave Maria’s law school: the Ave Maria project (in its many forms) serves as a “beacon in darkness, voice for all to hear.”

Of course we typically toil away hoping that our small lives will somehow change the world for the better – will change the world for Christ. How wonderful that the nation is now hearing our small voice as amplified by the swirl of current events. May that small voice resonate far and wide in the words of candidate Rick Santorum while addressing Ave Maria University, and in the words of AMU President Jim Towey as he announced that AMU is suing the Obama administration for violating first amendment religious freedoms.

(* Interesting fact: Ave Maria heavily favored Santorum in the primary at a time when Santorum was low in all the polls.)
