First, I will share some of his biographical information and then try to capture the essence of the ‘larger than life’ Fr. Serge.

In a mobile society rich in automobiles but poor in opportunities for reasoned discussion, one way that people express their views on politics, religion, and even philosophy is the message or symbol that they display on the backs of their cars, on or near the rear bumper.
