Prayer Request Form

 

April 24, 2015

Good morning Notre Dame,

Please stand for our Morning Prayer and Pledge of Allegiance.

Today we pray for the soul of Bridget Farragher, aunt of the Stritzel family, may she rest in peace. We continue to pray for all those in our community and for all the people listed in our Book of Intentions.

Today is the feast day of St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen

Mark Rey (Fidelis was his religious name) became a lawyer who constantly upheld the causes of the poor and oppressed people. Nicknamed "the poor man's lawyer," Fidelis soon grew disgusted with the corruption and injustice he saw among his colleagues. He left his law career to become a priest, joining his brother George as a member of the Capuchin Order. His wealth was divided between needy seminarians and the poor.  As a follower of St. Francis, Fidelis continued his devotion to the weak and needy. During a severe epidemic in a city where he was guardian of a friary, Fidelis cared for and cured many sick soldiers. If a poor man needed some clothing, Fidelis would often give the man the clothes right off his back. Complete generosity to others characterized this saint's life. 

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

Dear God, take into your hands my entire freedom, my memory, my understanding and my will.  Take all that I am, and all that I have and all that you have given me. Lord I surrender them to you, to be so disposed in accordance with your holy will. Give me your love and your grace, with these I am rich enough and desire nothing more. Amen

St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen, 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.

Have an awesome weekend, Dons!
