MARY MARGARET PAZDAN, OP, was honored by Aquinas Institute of Theology, St. Louis, MO, in October. Gregory Heille, OP (left), presented her with a plaque in recognition of her 36-year tenure as biblical studies faculty and now professor emerita. The plaque read, “With gratitude from your students and coworkers for your devotion to the Word of God in dedicated service as teacher and preacher, colleague and mentor. ‘May my teaching soak in like the rain, and my utterance drench like the dew, like a downpour upon the grass, like a shower upon the crops. For I will proclaim the name of the Lord, praise the greatness of our God’” (Deuteronomy 32:2–3).
