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.

St. John the Baptist……… pray for us
St. Ignatius………..pray for us
San Gennaro….. pray for us
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

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

TODAY’S PRAYER 

Good morning. Please remain seated for this morning’s prayer. This morning we are invited to pause at the end of our week to reflect on both the highs and the lows of the week, as well as where and how God has been present to us. We seek to consider the ways in which God invites us to grow through the Ignatian Examen passed on to us from St. Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises. And so we invite you to quiet yourselves and become aware of God’s presence.

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

TODAY’S PRAYER 

Today we remember the events of September 11, 2001, and for those who lost their lives, especially the members of the Fordham Prep family as we turn to God in prayer.

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

Dwight D Darcy ’63, Joseph D Dickey ’68, Joseph R Allen, ’80, Brendan Dolan ’82,
Thomas J Fitzpatrick ’83, Robert J Coll '84, Sean P McNulty ’91, Sean P Tallon NYFD ’92,
and Christopher M Duffy ’96,

And all family members and friends of the Prep who fell that day. Let us now take a moment of silent prayer.

Grant them eternal rest O Lord.
And may perpetual light shine upon them.
St. John the Baptist……… pray for us
St. Ignatius………..pray for us
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

TODAY’S PRAYER 

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

God of love, as we begin a new year on this first day of classes we ask for Your grace. 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 thus filled with your grace may Your greater glory be realized in all of our endeavors this year.

St. John the Baptist… pray for us.
St. Ignatius… pray for us.
 In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
