*Cardinal Stritch University*
Cardinal Stritch prepares us for this life and beyond,
Walking through fires like friars & Observants,
To the Red & Gray every wolf is fond,
And through Franciscan values: We are all servants.
You don’t have to be Catholic to live these values,
Only do what is necessary to reach & show love,
No, there is no appraisal on peaceful values,
Just find the world’s hatred then teach & sow love.
Then to better days these hearts will beat anew,
’Tis better to give back than to receive a royal fee,
Cardinal Stritch is known as the bridge between you and do:
“The Bridge between where you are and where you want to be.”
It’s true that life’s best things are free—and when afterlife rings:
We’ll learn to value the even better things.
