ATHLETICS

Tomorrow, September 21st, is National Concussion Awareness Day. It is important to recognize this common but serious head injury. There are over three million sports-related concussions every year, and concussions don’t just happen in sports. You can hit your head and get a concussion anytime: on the playground, while riding your bike, or from slipping and falling. If you have a concussion, you might feel dizzy, sick to your stomach, have trouble seeing, or have a hard time concentrating or remembering. Reporting a concussion to the nurse, athletic trainer, coach, teacher or an adult right away is important to help you get better and leads to a faster recovery. For more information, visit http://nationalconcussionawarenessday.com 

On Monday, Fordham prep hosted the 26th annual James Scott cross country challenge on the FP back track. Junior Niall Ryan and sophomore Eamonn Sullivan took a strong second and third place against state ranked Xavier. Niall broke the 10 minute barrier for the 2 mile run for the first time and Eamonn ran 10:01, beating last year's #1 Freshman. The Freshmen had 5 runners break 6:00 in the mile: Myles Hogan, Matthew Febles, Dean Mayo, Max Handler, and Jack D'Emlia . Congrats on a great meet. 

There will a short meeting today in room 342 at 2:35 for anyone planning on trying out for lacrosse in the spring.

TODAY’S PRAYER

Let us continue to pray for Mrs. Estrella and her family and let us take a step back and reflect on our week; on those moments when we’ve experienced God and those moments where we need to grow. And so, we pray… 

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

I ask God to bring to my heart the moments this week when I felt closest to God’s presence. 

I recall when I felt most alive, had the greatest sense of belonging to myself, others, or God. 

I recall when I felt able to share my gifts and receive the gifts of others. 

I thank God for His presence in my life and for giving me gifts with which to serve Him and to serve others. 

In God’s loving presence I ask to be made aware of the moments this week when I felt that I turned away from God or neglected to share or receive the gifts which God has given me. 

I look forward in hope and pray for the grace to love and to be loved for who I am. 

And so we pray, 

Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts, and enkindle in them the fire of your love. Help us to see ourselves and actions with honesty and patience, open to the growth that you desire for us. 

St. John the Baptist, pray for us 

St. Ignatius, pray for us

Dear God,

On this feast of San Gennaro, may I be a catalyst for light and love,
And bring inspiration to those whose eyes I meet.
May I have the strength to stand tall in the face of conflict,
And the courage to speak my voice, even when I’m scared.
May I have the humility to follow my heart,
And the passion to live my soul’s desires.
May I be brave enough to hear my heart,
To let it soften so that I may gracefully
Choose faith over fear, peace over violence.

And so we pray, 

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

God our Father, you gave Robert Bellarmine wisdom and goodness to spread and defend the faith of the Gospel. By his prayers may we be strengthened this day in our own call to pass on the light of faith in all we do and say.

In God’s loving presence I ask to be made aware of the moments this week when I felt that I turned away from God or neglected to share or receive the gifts which God has given me. 

I look forward in hope and pray for the grace to love and to be loved for who I am. 

And so we pray, 

Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts, and enkindle in them the fire of your love. Help us to see ourselves and actions with honesty and patience, open to the growth that you desire for us.

Holy God, Creator of all people and all nations,

We lift to You in prayer all those who died

in New York City, at the Pentagon, and on United Airlines Flight 93

in Shankesville, Pennsylvania.

We entrust them to Your loving care.

Console their families, friends, and all who mourn this loss

in the hope that all who trust in You find peace

and rest in Your Kingdom.

We pray for those who courageously responded to provide aid

and comfort to the afflicted.

Enable us, dear God, to put an end to fear:

By resolving to live lives that are based on respect for one another; 

By resolving to abide in a peaceful manner

and never settle disagreements in our lives in a violent way;

By resolving that justice, not revenge, prevail in our world.

Let us resolve that in the face of hatred, we will show love;

That in times of despair, we will be voices of hope

That in times of darkness, we will be sources of light.

And, let us honor the memory of the individuals

who died on September 11, 2001, in particular we remember our alumni:

May God be with them in their transition. Let us continue to pray for Mrs. Estrella of the Science department, as she continues her treatments for cancer. And let us pray for our Jewish brothers and sisters as they celebrate Rosh Hashanah.

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

God of love, thank you for the gift of new beginnings. As we begin our year, give us the grace to be open to growth as we seek to be made anew in your image and likeness. Give us the grace to be more religious as we seek to find You in all things. Give us the grace to be more loving as we continue to grow as men and women for and with others. Give us the grace to grow in intellect in all that we learn and may our learning strengthen and inspire our search for justice wherever injustice exists. And may all that we do this day and this year bring you greater glory.

St. John the Baptist… pray for us.

St. Ignatius… pray for us.
