Happy Thursday, Lancers!
This week’s prayer is from Philip Becker, Interim Director of Campus Ministry:
My Most Glorious and Suffering Lord, it is Your Hour. It is the Hour by which You conquered sin and death. It is the Hour for which You came into this world, taking on flesh so as to offer Your precious life for the salvation of the world.
May I be with You, dear Lord, in these moments of suffering and death. May I, like Your Mother, John and Mary Magdalene, stand at the foot of the Cross, gazing upon the perfect Gift of Love.
I love You, dear Lord. I love You with all my heart. Jesus, I trust in You.Amen. Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pray for us.
