Easter Message from President Drew Bogner 2020

"The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light."-Isaiah 9:2

This passage from the Old Testament speaks to us in the present day. Who among us has not felt that we were walking in darkness; that we are having difficulty seeing that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel?   

For some, the loss of livelihood, closeness and those all-important hugs, have indeed left a great sense of concern, fear and isolation. For others, watching and waiting for someone to recover has been painful and, most assuredly, the greatest form of heartache has been the unfathomable loss of a loved one. To those most especially, I offer my condolences and prayers.  

But, here we are celebrating life on Easter morning! On Easter, we, as Christians, celebrate life and the opportunity for new beginnings. Daily life as we know it will not be the same but we can focus on ways in which we can come together to celebrate all that is good.  

Whether you celebrate Easter or another religious observance this month, this is a sacred time for many; it is Spring, a time for rebirth and renewal. The Molloy Community has been and will continue to be a source of inspiration and serve as leaders in the quest to help others, including the greater community around us. I wish to thank you for all you have done to keep our communities safe and for serving as examples of how we treat and care for others.  

Gandhi said, "be the change you want to see in the world." At this time in our lives, let's be the light we know the world needs to see.  

Happy Easter,  

Drew Bogner, Ph. D.
