May studies here during the unfolding years bring growing radiance to the light of scientific learning enkindled at Notre Dame by Fathers Alexander M. Kirsch (1855-1923) and Francis J. Wenninger (1888-1940), Priests of Holy Cross, Teacher-Scholars in the Life Sciences, Deans.
They have sown the seeds of learning which through years of patient growth give rich yield: thirty-fold, sixty-fold, a hundred-fold. [See St. Matthew 13:8, St. Mark 4:20, St. Luke 8:8.]
