Bene­dic­tine com­mu­nity mourns priest’s death

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - OPINIONS -

EDI­TOR, TIMES-DIS­PATCH:

Thank you very much for writ­ing such a thought­ful trib­ute on the re­cent pass­ing of Fa­ther Adrian, who truly was the Rock of Bene­dic­tine (In Praise of Fr. Adrian W. Har­mening). There are count­less sto­ries from fel­low Cadets as to the sig­nif­i­cant role Fa­ther Adrian played dur­ing their for­ma­tive teenage years while at­tend­ing Bene­dic­tine Col­lege Prepara­tory. As you ap­pro­pri­ately ref­er­ence Robin Beres’ quote from her 2008 ar­ti­cle “The suc­cess of the school it­self is, in part, a prod­uct of the love and en­ergy the Rev. Har­mening has de­voted to it.”

The Bene­dic­tine fam­ily will mourn the pass­ing of a great leader of men over the next days and weeks, al­though many will con­tinue his legacy by pay­ing it for­ward to make a dif­fer­ence in the lives of oth­ers just as Fr. Adrian ex­em­pli­fied in his life­time.
