Pray for Notre Dame
The battle for Notre Dame’s Catholic identity cannot be won without a constant outpouring of prayer that is humble, trusting, and persevering in love.
However else you may choose to support Sycamore Trust, please join us in praying for an authentic Catholic renewal at Notre Dame, for those who stand tall for the truth of Catholicism on campus, for those in governance who have the fiduciary responsibility to support and defend the school’s Catholic mission, and for the growing number of alumni and friends of Our Lady’s university who have join us in the fight for Notre Dame’s Catholic identity.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love. (Roman Missal, Pentecost Sequence)
Eternal God, Creator and Sustainer of All Life, we beseech You to pour forth Your blessing on our beloved Notre Dame that she may be of special service to Your Church. Lead those entrusted with her mission by Your Divine Light. Help those who have benefited from her mission to be fully committed to supporting and defending it. Inspire the men and women of Sycamore Trust and the entire Notre Dame family with the words of our Holy Father, Pope Francis, to give the “uncompromising witness of Catholic Universities to the Church’s moral teaching, and the defense of her freedom…especially in the face of efforts, from whatever quarter, to dilute that indispensable witness.“ We make our prayer through the intercession of Mary, Notre Dame, Our Mother, and in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen
