Almighty God and Father, We thank you and we praise you for the many gifts and blessings of this year and of this day. We are grateful that you are here with us, dwelling among us at this moment, and that your love for us surpasses all fear. We offer to you any anxiety we may feel and we surrender our worries to you. Give us courage and strength in the next few hours. Grant us success, if success is good for us and what you will for us. Help us to understand what is being asked of us, to remember all that we have studied and prepared, and to express our answers and our responses to the best of our ability. We ask this in Your name. Amen.

Good morning. Today let us take some time to thank god for all our blessings. Our education, our health, our friends and family. And as the school year comes to an end, help us to focus and finish strong.

Let us begin in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love, where there is injury, pardon, where there is doubt, faith, where there is despair, hope, where there is darkness, light, where there is sadness, joy.

O, divine master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love, for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life. Amen.

St. Ignatius, pray for us

In the name of the father and of the son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Today in the Terry Center during all periods, an Issues Day entitled “Being men of love and responsibility” sponsored by the Department of Campus Ministry and the St. Joseph’s Society will be going on. We take a moment to pray now for the desire to listen and be open to the start of this important conversation…

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

A prayer adapted by John Veltri, SJ:

Teach me to listen, O God, to those nearest me, my family, my friends, my co-workers. Help me to be aware that no matter what words I hear, the message is, “Accept the person I am. Listen to me.” Teach me to listen, my caring God, to those far from me– the whisper of the hopeless, the plea of the forgotten, the cry of the anguished. Teach me to listen, O God my Mother, to myself. Help me to be less afraid to trust the voice inside — in the deepest part of me. Teach me to listen, Holy Spirit, for your voice — in busyness and in boredom, in certainty and doubt, in noise and in silence. Teach me, Lord, to listen.  Amen.

St. Joseph and St. Ignatius, pray for us.

So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.

                                        

Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath.Amen.

Good Morning. Today, we prepare ourselves for the upcoming season of Lent. Beginning with our celebration of Ash Wednesday mass tomorrow and followed by forty days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, we prepare ourselves to renew our baptismal commitment and and to live out our baptismal promises at Easter. As Christians from all over the world today will celebrate Mardi Gras, Carnival or Fat Tuesday, we allow for our feasting today  to anticipate our fasting throughout the Lenten Season.

Let us pray in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for it is from your goodness that we have this day to celebrate on the threshold of the Season of Lent.

As we feast today, we thank you for the abundance of gifts you shower upon us

and we are mindful of those who have so much less than we do.

Prepare us for tomorrow.

Tasting the fullness of what we have today, let us experience some hunger tomorrow.

May our fasting make us more alert and may it heighten our consciousness

so that we might be ready to hear your Word and respond to your call.

May our feasting fill us with gratitude so that our fasting may hollow out in us

a place for a deeper desire and an attentiveness to hear the cry of the poor.

May our self-denial turn our hearts to you and give us a new freedom for generous service to others. We ask you for these graces with our hearts full of delight and stirring with readiness for the journey ahead.

We ask this with confidence in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.

A Reading from the Acts of the Apostles:

They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.

Lord, may our thoughts, words, and actions of this day be always for your greater glory. Amen.

St. Ignatius, pray for us.

Calm us with the true knowledge that we are prepared and we are capable.  Help us to understand what is being asked of us, to remember all that we have studied and prepared, and to express our answers and our responses to the best of our ability.

Finally, Send forth your Spirit as together we pray the words Jesus taught us:

Our Father, Who art in heaven Hallowed be Thy Name;

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses,

Let your kindness comfort me

according to your promise to your servants.

Let your compassion come to me that I may live,

for your law is my delight.

Never will I forget your precepts,

for through them you give me life.

I am yours; save me,

for I have sought your precepts.

 

Loving God, we thank you for the gift of this very special day of the year. Help us to properly honor our school today, to cherish our traditions, to honor those who have come before us and made our school into what it is today, especially those alumni who are “coming home” to our community this weekend.

A Pledge to Christ

I pledge an allegiance to Jesus Christ, to have the privilege to witness His holy presence and Divine dwelling. Although I understand and admit that I'm a sinner, I believe that despite my offenses against God, He longs to search deep in my soul and vanquish my iniquities. I accept Jesus's invitation to love God and my neighbor and bring His kingdom to earth. God knows I am weak and unworthy, yet He yearns that I choose to love Him. Although carrying my cross is difficult, Jesus never ceased doing the will of God. Therefore, I enlist myself to be His soldier of justice, in the war between evil and holiness. And while I may not have the courage to stand up for my faith in whatever situation, in the end, I will always desire deep in my heart, Jesus Christ!

May Christ the King long live in my heart, house, and country! Amen.

St. Ignatius, Pray for us.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this, you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.  I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone. We ask this in Your name. Amen.

St. Ignatius, Pray for us.

Let us begin in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Together, we pray the prayer of St. Monica.

Mother of the great Augustine, you pursued your wayward son not with wild threats but with prayerful cries to heaven.  Intercede for all mothers in our day so that they may learn to draw their children to God. Teach them how to remain close to their children, even the prodigal sons and daughters who have sadly gone astray.

Lord, may our thoughts, words, and actions of this day be always for your greater glory. We ask this in Your name. Amen.

St. Monica and St. Ignatius, Pray for Us.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Good morning. Today we pray especially for the new students, teachers, and faculty that will be accompanying us in this upcoming school year. As they begin to take their first steps in their journey here at Jesuit, may we welcome them into our community with open hearts and do our best to help them in their transition to their new surroundings.

                                        

Let us begin in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

                                        

Together, let us pray these words of St. Ignatius:

“Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding and my entire will, All I have and call my own. You have given all to me. To you, Lord, I return it. Everything is yours; do with it what you will. Give me only your love and your grace. That is enough for me.”

                                        

Lord, may our thoughts, words, and actions of this day be always for your greater glory. We ask this in Your name. Amen.

St. Ignatius, Pray for us.

                                        

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
