Ups and downs
U.S. Regional Superior Father Mike Duggan gives a copy of the Society Constitutions to the five new members in formation. Mike alluded to the famous scene from The Lion in Winter where Henry II (Peter O'Toole) spends the Christmas Court with his erstwhile imprisoned wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine (Catherine Hepburn), trying to poison, stab or strangle each other. At one point, Henry flings Eleanor to the ground after throttling her. She looks at the camera and says, "What family doesn't have its ups and downs?"
Turning to and naming the new Sems, Mike added, "Welcome to Maryknoll."
