A few years ago when we were working there, one of our students had to leave early and I was driving him to the airport. Before he left, one of the lay volunteers came over to the house to say goodbye to him and the student handed him all the money he had left (about $30-40). He asked her to give the money to Bro. Xavier for his token fund. I was floored but not surprised and this remains one of my fondest memories of Trinity High School.
I say all this because St. Francis Inn posted on Facebook yesterday that Bro. Xavier suffered a stroke yesterday at the friary and had emergency brain surgery. But, thanks be to God, the surgery was successful and Bro. Xavier will recover. It's funny, I was thinking of him the other day and was wondering how much longer he could give of himself as he is almost 80. I, like so many others, love Bro. Xavier and his witness. Please continue to pray for him and the people he serves. He is a true disciple of Christ and people need him (and Him) more than ever.
