Ring the Bells That Still Can Ring

posted by Beyond Blue

Over the weekend I delivered the Commencement address to my alma mater, Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. I was extremely honored and worked hard on the speech (75 drafts) to make sure I delivered a message that I would have wanted to hear at my graduation. Here is my attempt.

Thank you, President Mooney. And thank you to all the professors and staff of Saint Mary’s, especially those who have changed my life: Joe Incandela, Keith Egan, Phyllis Kaminski, and Nancy Mascotte.

I am incredibly grateful to be here today.

I grew up on this campus …

I arrived in August of 1989 a very insecure teenager who had just quit drinking. Within the walls of the Counseling and Career Development Center I began my path to healing and recovery. I was engaged to be married at the gazebo that used to overlook the St. Joseph River, which I promise to rebuild if I ever get rich. And my husband, Eric, and I were married at The Church of Our Lady of Loretto.

This school is part of my soul because it was here that I found the courage to be myself and to believe in myself, despite the rude commentary inside my head. My friends, professors, and counselors taught me how to focus on the rays of light in whatever darkness I encountered and to let that light guide me and inspire those around me.

I’d like to share with you lyrics from Leonard Cohen’s song, “Anthem,” that remind me of what I learned at Saint Mary’s, appropriate for you, Saint Mary’s Belles:

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

If you don’t remember anything else that I say today, remember that: Ring the cracked bells, even when you’re scared and unsure and convinced that nothing you say or do will ever be significant or noble. Be you even when being you feels uncomfortable. Risk rejection in order to share your talents with the world. And always, always let the light in so it might illuminate the darkness for others.

* * *

Three years ago J. K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, urged the graduating seniors of Harvard University to embrace failure, to celebrate it, even. Because, she said, failure strips away the inessential.

“Had I really succeeded at anything else,” she told the class of 2008, “I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area I believed I truly belonged.” She was referring to the state of poverty she endured seven years out of school, with a child to raise, nonetheless.

Ironic, really. That crashing head-on into her biggest fear—impoverishment—ultimately freed her to use her gifts in a way that amassed her great wealth and enabled her to touch the lives of millions around the world.

My greatest fear growing up wasn’t economic turmoil. I had read way too many saints books to think that poverty was a bad thing. No, my fear was that I would go crazy. Batty. Nutso.

My aunt and godmother had spent most of her adult life hospitalized and to this day I can picture her blank stare and those of the listless patients in her psych unit. When I was 16 years old my Aunt Mary Lou took her own life.

So you can imagine the panic I felt as a young girl when I started counting the cracks in the sidewalk and felt compelled to skip over them, or when I couldn’t make the ugly and scary thoughts go away. I pictured Mary Lou and the blank stares and I begged God to deliver me from Looneyville.

But he didn’t.

After giving birth to two beautiful miracles–which rearranged most of the biological systems inside my body–there I was … in a psych ward with a guy pounding his head against the wall while screaming profanities. I had officially gone crazy. I knew that the afternoon I painted a birdhouse in occupational therapy, or “recess” in a psych unit.

Just like J. K. Rowling, I had no choice but to walk through my greatest fear and pick up the pieces. To face the world as I am—cracked and fragile and wacky. And yet in that moment, I was free … free to ring my damaged but precious bell. And to let the light in and out. Just as I was taught at Saint Mary’s.

I’m sure many of you have already experienced times of hopelessness and dejection after an academic setback or personal blow. But here you are. On this beautiful day. With a bright future ahead. You persevered with the help of others and the grace of God. And you will do so in the future if you continue to focus on the stream of light filtering through the cracks of life, and be guided by that light.

Failure is really not so bad.

“We would never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world,” wrote Helen Keller.

Consider Oprah.

She began her career about 40 miles from my home as an anchorwoman for the Baltimore news. She was demoted because she became too emotional when interviewing people. She would cry on camera. So the station gave Oprah her own talk show. To get rid of her. And she did pretty well with it!

I relish these kinds of false-start success stories … Albert Einstein failed his college entrance exam. Walt Disney was fired from his first media job. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school varsity basketball team. Dr. Seuss was rejected 43 times before his first story was published. But oh, the places he went.

These tales inspire me because nothing has ever come easily to me … or maybe to you.

I didn’t receive many early endorsements to write. In fact, my eighth-grade English teacher read aloud my paper to the class as an example of how not to write. My name is in print today because Saint Mary’s taught me the basics of good writing, as well as analytical thinking.

When I read the first 50 rejection letters, I noticed they were all signed by an acquisitions editor, the person responsible for throwing a manuscript into the slush pile, which I call the flush pile, or placing it on the desk of a managing editor with contact information of the lucky author. So, theoretically, if I were to become an acquisitions editor that meant I could vote yes on my own books. Which is exactly what I did. And I published six children’s books the next year from Paulist Press.

* * *

According to a popular legend, dishonest sculptors in 16th-century Rome and Greece would use wax to fill in the cracks and crevices of marble to make the surface appear solid. The wax would disintegrate, of course, right after the sculpture was made. This happened so often that stonecutters began to stamp blocks of authentic marble with the Latin words, Sine Cere, or “without wax.” That’s where the word sincere found its origins.

To be sincere, then, doesn’t mean that we don’t have cracks and fractures, but that we don’t attempt to fill in those imperfections with things that don’t stand the test of time.

I believe that God lives in the space between the cracks and fractures of our souls. It is God that grounds and shelters our being and gives us the sense of safety and security that is needed to make ourselves vulnerable before each other, and then to go beyond ourselves to spread love to the rejected and hope to the hopeless.

Amid all the counseling, medications and therapies I’ve tried over the years, it is ultimately my faith in a loving God that has held me together during the darkest of times. When nothing else could convince me to stick around, I became a scared child in the arms of God—and reminded myself that I didn’t have to do anything or write anything or be anyone for God to love me and use me as an instrument of his great love.

God is the reason I can be Sine Cere.

And so it is with you.

* * *

You women are so unbelievably lucky.

Students across America graduate today with skill sets they will use in their first jobs or as graduate students somewhere. However, you, Saint Mary’s graduates, leave here with a skill set for life. Which is far more important than your career.

I believe that this school prepares you not only to sit in your first cubicle but also in an ICU waiting room. You will excel as accountants, nurses, teachers, attorneys, writers, and consultants. But you will also be able to console a loved one who has just lost a parent or a friend who is grieving the end of her marriage. You have been trained to succeed in your occupations as physicians, professors, and stay-at-home mothers. But you have also been enlightened on matters of the heart and soul that extend far beyond the professional world.

I have no doubt that you will find meaningful work in whatever field you pursue because graduating from Saint Mary’s leaves you with a subtle nagging, a chronic pestering, that makes it virtually impossible to ignore your inner voice: to ring the cracked bells, to be yourself, to believe in your journey, and to allow your journey to direct you toward the service of others.

But you will need help. You will need the support of your friends.

So right now I ask you to take a moment to think about your closest classmates, and make a promise to yourself to do your best in the years ahead to remain united to these women, your Saint Mary’s sisters.

In addition to my mother and stepfather, my sisters Sarah, Christy, and Trish, and my husband, Eric, and our two children, David and Katherine, I have three of my classmates here with me today to celebrate this momentous occasion: Beatriz Castillo, Sandy Hernandez, and Libby Gray. They are my best friends and Saint Mary’s sisters, as each one of them has taken a turn believing in me when I wasn’t up for the job. And vice versa.

* * *

Just one more story before you go on to receive your diplomas.

In April of 2006, I sat on my daughter’s bed one night reading a somewhat cheesy bedtime story entitled Incredible You! 10 Ways to Let Your Greatness Shine Through by Wayne Dyer. The book was more therapy for me than entertainment for her, because I had just been released from my second hospital stay and was still struggling with the basics: taking a shower, eating a bowl of Cheerios, tying my shoes. I got to number eight and read it aloud to Katherine: “Pretend you are what you’d like to be. Make a picture in your mind so you can see … that what you want can come true. If you believe in your heart, it will come to you.”

I paused for a second, and I asked my little girl what she wanted to be.

“A scientist!” she said. “Because I could do fun things like mix body lotion with flour and Kool-Aid.”

Then I closed my eyes and came to a very clear picture of who I wanted to be.

She was a confident woman who could shower, eat cereal, and tie her shoes without a hiccup. In fact, having moved through the raw pain of clinical depression, she was able to bring hope and support to others disabled by mood disorders. The woman I envisioned was standing at this podium, delivering a commencement address at Saint Mary’s College.

* * *

So, my dear Saint Mary’s sisters, I hope and pray that you will embrace your failures, be brave and bold enough to be sincere … with others, with yourself, and with God. And I recommend that you carry with you always the wisdom of Leonard Cohen. His words have guided me and they might guide you too.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

Congratulations, Belles, and good luck.

    Therese, your beautiful speech is an amazing gift to those women fortunate to be among the graduating class you addressed. And to the readers of Beyond Blue, with whom you shared it.

    What a wonderful speech but it’s also a very inspiring post to read. I’ve always loved part of the quote you used of Leonard Cohen’s but never knew where it came from. “everything has a crack in it, that’s how the light gets in.” Reading those 4 lines together make it even better!

    Thank you for sharing this with us – Razz2

    I was at the St.Mary’s graduation for my daughter. Our whole family was very impressed by your speech and your willingness to share your testimony. My daughter is very happy to be a St.Mary’s sister and to consider you one of them. God Bless you! I am now a follower of beyond blue. Congratulations!

    That is the best, most beautiful commencement speech I’ve ever read! A real masterpiece!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Paula Wethington

    Thanks for sharing your speech text. I am also a mother of a graduate from SMC’s Class of 2011 and hoped you would post this!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Brooke

    Therese, I love the bit about the wax and the origins of “sincere” coming from that idea of being without wax – in not trying to cover the cracks, the holes, the empty spaces. That’s just so perfect. I’ll never forget it. Thanks for sharing.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Karen N.

    Just beautiful, Therese, just beautiful. Thank you so much for caring about all of us who need it so badly. You are a true example of God’s love embodied.

    Thank you for sharing this moving speech. I hope to help instill this to my daughter who is struggling with depression. She’s had a tough year and will be a senior in high school next year. I love her so much but she doesn’t seem to share the feeling when it comes to herself. I don’t care if she fails I just want her to ring her own bells and sing her own song.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Marie

    I cannot express the emotions I felt after listening to your speech Saturday at the SMC graduation. Not only did you speak to my oldest daughter, a member of the 2011 graduating class but also my youngest daughter, a member of the 2014 Belles class. All three of us were truly touched by your words. I too, am now a follower of Beyond Blue.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Colette

    I told a friend about your talk as she is struggling with depression and anxiety. Of course I cried yet again when I was relating many of the bits of wisdom you expressed in your address. You will never know how many people you help – because you are a picture of hope in the midst of a situation that could be hopeless. Thank you for giving us this gift.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Shelly

    Eloquent…so right on. The graduating class was so privileged to hear you speak. I love the Sine Cere story and meaning. It’s what I want to be in all of my relationships.

    I have tears streaming down my face as I think about my own life’s journey. I was privileged to give one of the speeches at my high school graduation. Who knew what I’d become!

    I have not been in the ‘loony bin’ but I am certifiably ‘crazy’ myself. It’s been a lifelong journey even though it’s only been 18 months since diagnosis of bipolar disorder.

    Today I ‘graduated’ from therapy. I am healthy and have the tools in my tool box to manage my bipolar/depression. I am able to launch into the next thing…going back to graduate school to become a Master of Social Work. I hope to become a therapist myself.

    Thank you, Therese, for your continued wonderful posts…you have been an ‘online therapist’ for me the past 6 months!

    Therese reading this article today somehow makes me feel that you sense what I am going through.. Nothing or no one can make this dread go away..I have been taking anti depressants for the past one year after a traumatic experience but not enough therapy. So though the medication has helped me tremendously…there are times when the anxiety & the sadness creep in..I cant explain why but I feel like collapsing and bawling my eyes out…there no tears left for that either..Thank you for the bottom of my heart for being so open & frank about the fight with your inner demons…You bring a ray of hope in me..Love you…God bless!!

    I just got on the computer after a sleepless night. I was touched by your willingness to be transparent. You have made my day!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Vickie Batcheldor

    I began my day by reading your post. Your words are full of life. They are spoken from your heart and from agonizing experience. I feel priviledged to read these words that you have artfully woven together. The message is clear and inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Frank

    Therese, I almost didn’t read this – my day was already in overdrive and I didn’t think I had time for a commencement speech, even from a friend. BUT…, something inside me said, “Stop. Be still. Read.” So, I did and I was blessed – amazed at what 75 drafts had accomplished. You will never have to look back on this speech and say, “I should have said…” You said it all and you said it well. It was amazing and truly outstanding. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to read and comprehend a truth that might otherwise have escaped me. Wow, wow, wow.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Paul Moore

    God Bless, Therese–great speech. You continue to be a beacon of hope for fellow travellers.

    Your words from the heart never fail to inspire…

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment susan buzzard

    thank you. My struggle has returned. Its name is anxiety and rejection. Reading your daily blog helps me to realize that ALL of us feel isolated or lonely sometimes. I’m not so different afterall.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment phyllis

    WOW!!! i agree, you will never have any regrets regarding this speech. as i read the speech and all the posts following they all said things about the speech i wanted to. ur willingness to be transparent and let the world see ur cracks. u have inspired me since i found u and began reading ur posts due to live, love, and show my own cracks to the world and not be insecure. i found u 3 yrs ago after a suicide attempt…thank God i was not successful as He has used my life in so many ways since that time. i guess i just want to say thank u for being u!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Linda Connolly

    Beautiful. Many, many thanks.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment JiLLB

    Terese, like others, my first response was WOW… I kept saying it as I read through your speech. You didn’t give these girls the garbage some graduates hear. You were indeed *sincere*, honest and offered a perspective of life that I believe everyone needs to hear. Failure is ok, failure is good, failure allows us to grow and learn.

    Some of us have more cracks than others, but you helped me understand that those cracks are where God lives. I’m going through one of my deepest times right now and I, too, almost deleted my email alert. I was drawn to it as I began to read, though. I’m so thankful I did! Thank you (for posting this work of art) doesn’t seem enough!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Holly

    Thank you, Therese. I’m struggling out of the abyss again – your words are so encouraging. Leonard Cohen’s words keep me going. The cracks turn out to be where we’re strongest. You are a blessing every day. Thanks for the reminders of hope and possibility and gentle perseverance.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Heather

    Thank you for such dedicated, painstaking work. Your speech is absolutely beautiful. Everyone with a mood disorder struggles mightily, and two things especially filled me with gratitude when I read your speech. One, thank you for recognizing the women who are fortunate to be able to stay home raising their children fulltime as having a true “occupation.” In secular circles, that choice is often derided as the waste of an educated woman. Two, managing a serious mood disorder when you are the mother of young children is incredibly difficult, because the stakes are so high for your family. Thank you for having the courage to be open about what these challenges are, what they feel like, and all the things you have tried and do every day to overcome them (and encouraging us not to beat ourselves to death on those days when “overcoming” is just not happening.) Thank you for your courage and generosity.

    Therese,
    The Commencement Speech was indeed a very powerful speech for the graduating Class of Saint Mary’s College. Thank you for sharing it with your readers here on Beyond Blue, of which I am one. I pray it will inspire many more to become who they are truely meant to be while on this short journey of life here on earth. Your words touched my down-trodden heart. I had lost my vision while going through yet another bout of deep depression. I particularly loved the reference to Leonard Cohen’s words, “Ring the bells that can still ring…”. Though today may not be my best day, it is not my worst, I am still here. Though I am tired and weak, I am still here; and it too shall pass. Your words helped me cling to life today, and I’m barely clinging.

  • http://Congratulations! Cathy

    You are an awe inspiring human being and I commend you. Your bravery and insights are amazing. You inspire me and your words, as always, never fail to bring courage and peace to my troubled soul. Thank you and may God bless you!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Janine

    As always you have touched my heart. Thank you for sharing your failures and your courage. Your speech is truly Sine Cere and I know I will come back to it often. God bless ad keep you close.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Kevin Keough

    You dreaming this commencement speech into your life is a sign of the presence of the Holy Spirit at work in our world. I’m not even going to try to articulate how well you rang that bell. It was music to my ears.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Meghan

    Therese,

    I’d say it, but everyone else already has. While I will add is that you’d better put these comments in your Self-Esteem File!

    Much love to you.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Grace

    What a beautiful speech. Thank you for touching my life and the lives of so many others with your words. Thank you for having the courage to share and for sharing. Every time I read your posts, I feel less alone (and often, they also make me cry–but in a good way).

    You’ve captured something I have been trying to express over the last year perfectly … I have been living my worst fear every day of my life for several months and it is truly the most humbling experience in the world to put it mildly. To go forward each day after the unthinkable happens is surreal, painful, life-altering…a journey I wouldn’t wish on anyone, but one in which meaning can be found and good can be done. I am thankful for strong, brave, wise people like you who continue to show us that there is life to be lived after suffering through the worst, and it can be beautiful.

    Thank you.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Betty

    Words cannot express my gratitude for your honesty and courage. As a St Mary’s Belle, it provides me with hope that I am not alone.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Mike G

    I tend to skip some of your more “religious” postings as I went to St. Mary’s in Annapolis and that (and some other things) drove me permanently away. But I decided to read your commencement address. It was wonderful. As a graduate of the class of “2004 Tried to Kill Myself”, I was amazed at the clarity and realism about the road ahead the graduates face. I only wish I had had such guidance earlier in life. You did great!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Colleen

    As a graduate of the Saint Mary’s Class of 2011, I want to thank you for your inspiring words at our graduation ceremony. I, along with my entire family, was impressed with your eloquence and your wonderful advice for women like myself. Saint Mary’s is lucky to have you as an alumnae!
