At the conclusion of Wednesday’s classes, students met up in St. Joseph Commons, where prefect Dan Selmeczy led the final dance class (although he’s offering an optional review tonight), preparing students for tomorrow’s farewell gala. As soon as the class ended, the group headed to the athletic field for a prefects vs. students soccer match. The prefects won 5-0 — thanks to the great goalkeeping skills of Seamus O’Brien — in a hard-fought game that seemed closer than its final score suggests.

At study hall students prepared for today’s classes on Euclid and Boethius, once again visiting classrooms to practice their propositions on the blackboards. They then met up in the Chapel to pray the Rosary, after which came the highlight of the evening: “Theology on Float.” Prefects served scores of root-beer floats to thirsty students, who sat back and listened to Fr. Sebastian answer their anonymously submitted questions on all matters pertaining to the Faith. The topics included Old Testament–New Testament symbolism,  the order of Creation and man’s purpose in it, human sexuality, and the true understanding of marriage in light of the Trinity and the Incarnation.

The two-hour discussion was so popular that they spilled over into post-curfew conversations around the fire pits in the residence-hall courtyards. Fr. Sebastian joined the women’s conversation, and then the men’s, before leading both groups in their nightly consecrations.

It was another great day — only two more to go!
