The following quote came from a speech by Fr. Kilian McDonnell, OSB, at the 1987 spring luncheon at the Collegeville Institute. The speech was originally printed in the 1987 spring issue of Ecumenical People, Programs, and Papers.
“When the buildings were being planned, I instructed the architect, Marcel Breuer, that there must be a chapel in the administration building. If ecumenism is not built on prayer, it is built on sand. That prayer dimension was to be architecturally visible.”
