2017 Jubilarian Reflections
Fr. J. Daniel Daly, SJ

Fr. Dan Daly's Jubilee Reflection

The chapel at Regis University has a towering north window looking out over a magnificent panorama of mountains, trees, and Colorado sky. It is little wonder that the president’s chair that faces the window is described as the best seat in the house. Of course, presiders always get a great view from where they sit, because we look out on the faith-filled people gathered to pray.

Being a priest has provided me a wonderful and inspiring view of God’s holy people. I have stood next to a young couple as they pledge a lifetime of love to each other. I have chatted with an usher who has been coming to the same church and happily serving in the same capacity for 20 years. I have listened to the quiet confession of a man who loves his wife and children so much that it breaks his heart when he has failed them in some way. I have seen college students give beautiful talks about their lives and their faith to peers gathered in a mountain lodge on a snowy Saturday night. I have gathered around a baptismal font with an extended family as they welcome their newest member into the faith and pray in confidence in God’s care and protection.

Serving as a priest for 25 years has been an honor and a privilege. I am grateful to God and to his holy people for the opportunity.
