The year was 1933.
“So the nuns with the golden heart,
A little like the crusaders of old,
Cried, “The charity of God urges us!”
And in that love, and with that faith
They opened a College.
In 1933, for a world that needed the leavening of good women,
And wisdom was there, and love,
And much human weakness
And much heroic effort.
And the wisdom of humor was there as well –
And fun, and wholesome frolicking.”
