In East Africa, Michael Rossmann, SJ, watched on his laptop in the middle of the night as Notre Dame beat USC and completed an undefeated season. The experience led him to think about the Kingdom of God–here but not here.
It was like I was right there watching with my fellow Domer friends and family. Except I wasn’t. I was alone in my bedroom as the world around me slept. As much as it made me feel connected to the people that I love, it was also a – yet another – painful reminder that I am far, far away from them.
