Inscription.  

Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not count the cost;
Lord, teach me to be generous,
to fight and not heed the wounds;
to toil and not to seek for rest;
to labor and not to ask for reward
save that of knowing that I do your will.
~ St. Ignatius Loyola
 
Erected by University of Scranton.
