Jay Wright on Fr. Rob Hagan; PLUS! Father gives us his Bible readings for tonight!

I can do all things through HIM who strengthens me!” We can do all things through HIM who strengthens us!  I am the vine you are the branches. Abide in me and you will bear much fruit!!!” 

Jay Wright: ” I think every player and every member of our staff will tell you Father Rob is one of the greatest men any of us have in our lives. He has been an integral part of the program and also of my life…I count on him as a dear friend. Our whole team and staff attend a prayer service before every game. It starts with Father Rob doing a reading from the Bible and then he does a homily. He’s never talking about the game. He’s talking about life. And what kind of men we are and what kind of Christians we are. I always joke with Fr. Rob, ‘Don’t make us cry before the game.’

He’s one of the most Christ-like people I know, if not the most. And everybody in our program and in my family feels that way. He’s so real and so committed to this life of serving Christ. It’s inspirational. He’s an amazing man, he really is.
