Prayer Request Form

 

April 17, 2015

Good morning Notre Dame,

Please stand for our Morning Prayer and Pledge of Allegiance.

Today we pray for the soul of Bert Hoffman, a generous benefactor to Notre Dame College Prep; may he 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. Benedict Joseph Labre.

He became a pilgrim, traveling from one great shrine to another, living off alms. He wore the rags of a beggar and shared his food with the poor. Filled with the love of God and neighbor, Benedict had special devotion to the Blessed Mother and to the Blessed Sacrament. In Rome, he was called "the poor man of the Forty Hours Devotion" and "the beggar of Rome." The people accepted his ragged appearance better than he did. His excuse to himself was that "our comfort is not in this world."

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

O God, by the humility of your Son, you have raised up a fallen world; to your faithful people give a lasting joy so that those whom you have rescued from the 
danger of eternal death may enjoy endless happiness because of you. 
Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord
.

St. Benedict Joseph Labre, 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 a nice weekend, Dons.
