Rich Mullins: 10/21/1955 - 9/19/1997

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. May his souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Thanks for this memorial. I was a big Rich Mullins fan in HS and college, and he died right around the time I started RCIA myself. It was very poignant for me to learn he was planning to enter the Church too. He may never received the Real Presence in this world, but I have no doubt he is experiencing the Real Presence now!

We had seen the Nicole Johnson story about the book her friend gave her, it is a (usually unattributed) viral email, and we have quoted it and linked to her website, but I had not seen the video, thanks for sharing it.

When we were all at Princeton together, we often prayed in the chapel there, which is a Gothic Cathedral-like space. Just a few years before we started school, the Blessed Sacrament was reserved in a small part of the chapel. Princeton's was the first Ivy League chapel to hold the Blessed Sacrament!

The title was also inspired by an old quote, which I used to have on my own blog but could not find a source for, it went something like this:

They say that it was faith that built the great cathedrals, but geometry played it's part, too.

We think that this fits really well with our profiles as highly educated mothers. Our faith builds our families, but our reason is part of our story, too.

Five points to anyone who can find the quote...
