In fact, the response was so enthusiastic that it loosened the power cord to the projector, causing a momentary loss of the Lacroix video feed. Lacroix obviously enjoyed being back at Trinity, if only in a digital sense.
Next month, Lacroix is scheduled to travel to Rome, where he and 18 others will be formally elevated to cardinal.
"I didn't apply for this job. Believe me, I have enough work," Lacroix said.
If the Catholic church continues in the direction it has under Francis, they could very well see a Pope Gerald one day, said Kasie Bourque, a senior.
Bourque noted that Trinity has a wall in the gymnasium that recognizes students who have gone on to become professional athletes. "To add a cardinal to it is so Trinity," she said.
