Legacy, part deux

I have had this quote in my desk blotter for some time… and it is also in my gig notebook. Today I found out more about the author.

Father Mychal Judge was a chaplain in the NYFD. He heard about the attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11 and rushed to the scene to be… a chaplain and pastor, or, as he was called, “The Fireman’s Friar.”

I found out more about his story here and here. After reading about his life, the words of this prayer have a deeper meaning to me…

Take me where You want me to go
Let me meet who you want me to meet;
Tell me what You want me to say, and
Keep me out of Your way.
– Father Mychal Judge

That, my friends, is a legacy lived well…
