Loyola's Most Loyal Fan

A tribute to the team chaplain…
Loyola U's most loyal fan
is not a boisterous Midwest man.
She is a nun. Her name is Jean.
The team respects her so.
She is the chaplain for the guys.
Her cheers aren't loud, but they are wise.
Jean keeps them focused on their goal
confined to a wheelchair.
Yes, Sister Jean is ninety-eight.
But she's not old. She's feeling great!
And though her team might come up short,
she's long on praise and love.
This little nun inspires me
to be the best that I can be,
to find a cause to celebrate
and putting feet to faith.
