What Others Say
Wimmer Wednesday. While in school, the future archabbot’s friends had this to say about him:
“Sebastian’s friends said of him that he was definitely of strong character, and did not let any obstacle get in his way once he had made a decision. At the same time, he was always cheerful, full of unshakeable trust in God and most loyal dedication to his set goal, and he also had the gift of quickly winning the full trust of all who came in contact with him.”
—From Boniface Wimmer, Abbot of Saint Vincent in Pennsylvania, translated by Dr. Maria Von Mickwitz and Father Warren Murrman, O.S.B., editor.
