The first one is the religious institution whosw way of life exemplified simplicity. The second one is commerical institution as seen in the titanic industrial genius of Charles M. Schwab, whose boundless imgination and fortitude molded the American steel industry, and whose materialistic objectives could be realized because of his wealth and status in life.The co-existence of these seemingly polarized forces supported by their respective philosophies remains the impetus for the way of life characteristic of people who reside within the geographic confines of Loretto and surrounding communities."
