15 Lessons We Learned from Father Naus
Father Naus, Marquette icon and grandfather to all in the Marquette family, never failed to brighten our days with his jolly presence and wide smile. The beloved priest will be dearly missed by all in the Marquette community as he touched the lives of many.
For evidence of this, just take a look at the #FatherNausTaughtMe hashtag on Twitter. It was started by Jessica Herrick, Arts ‘10, on Sunday night after the Marquette community learned of Father Naus’ passing.
Father Naus was a philosophy teacher whose wisdom continued to resonate far beyond the walls of his classroom. We remember the many lessons taught by Father Naus. Here are just a few.
1. Recognize each other for all that they are and do.
"See written on the forehead of everyone you meet today ‘Make me feel important.’"
2. We are all family.

9. Success lies in true happiness.

Father Naus was a teacher whose wisdom resonated far beyond the classroom. We remember the many lessons he taught us.
Today, we honor his memory with visitation from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Church of the Gesu, followed by a funeral Mass at 7 p.m.
