"Don't waste love."
His booming voice woke our hearts and his welcoming presence calmed our souls. His words ignited fire and his compassion extinguished fear. His intellect sparked excellence and his humility inspired grace and solidarity.
We will remember Fr. Pilarz for many things, but most of all, for love. He trusted us with his love, and we won't waste it.
