He presented the Euclidian theorems of plane geometry with what we figured was a French-Canadian accent, but he grew up in Massachusetts, and became a teacher in the Marist Brothers of the Schools. He taught in Manhasset–that’s how I came to know him.
If he taught you in geometry, wait ‘til he taught you in physics and the laws of Bernoulli, Newton, and Borg came to light in your brain. All his expertise was underlined with his simple attendance at daily mass and his docile following of the Rule of the Marist Order.
I don’t know why he didn’t go on to teach at Marist College; I presume the Lord had high schoolers like me in mind. His name was Brother Augustine.
