Prayer Request Form

May 21, 2015

Good morning Notre Dame,

Please stand for our Morning Prayer and Pledge of Allegiance.

We pray for all of those in our community and for those listed in our Book of Intentions.

Today is the feast day of St. Cristóbal Magallanes and Companions.

St. Christopher Magallanes, along with 21 other priests and three lay companions, were martyred throughout eight Mexican states for their membership in the Cristero movement. He and his companions secretly preached and ministered to the faithful of Mexico. “Long live Christ the King and the Virgin of Guadalupe!

”This was the slogan of the “Cristero” uprising in the 1920’s against the anti-Catholic government of Mexico which had instituted and enforced laws against the Church in an absurd attempt to eradicate the Catholic faith in Mexico, even going so far as to ban all foreign clergy and the celebration of Mass in some regions.

Pope John Paul II beatified the Cristero martyrs in 1992 and canonized them in 2000.

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

Almighty and eternal God, who made the Priest Saint Christopher Magallanes
and his companions faithful to Christ the King even to the point of martyrdom,
grant us, through their intercession, that, persevering in confession of the true faith,
we may always hold fast to the commandments of your love. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever! Amen

St. Cristóbal Magallanes and Companions, pray for us! Notre Dame, pray for us!

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

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands: one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Study hard, Dons!
