For this, We Pray
Early in the COVID-19 public health crisis, Pope Francis prayed to Mary to protect Italy and the world during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.”
While it is imperative for us to practice social distancing, we can join together as a community of prayer for ourselves and for the world.
Please share your intentions and Fr. Pecoraro will remember them in his Masses.
At the Mass for the North American Martyrs, the entire school offered a special blessing on the Portland Immersion participants (above), before they embarked on their four-day immersion in Portland. Immersion participants become “contemplatives in action.” Before, during and after trips, students are led through deep reflection so that they might better discern ways to actively engage with the world. The vision behind these trips is grounded in the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and made concrete in the documents and wisdom contained within our Jesuit tradition. Senior Emma Gallant, a participant in this past summer's Rosebud Reservation trip, then offered a reflection on her personal experience.
