God of all strength and consolation, you always hear those who cry out to you in their need. Though the world’s evils are many, never let your faithful people be overcome. Heal us with the bread of life and the cup of eternal salvation. Let your face shine upon us and we shall be saved. Grant this through Christ, our risen Lord. Amen.   Prayer written by the University of Notre Dame

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever!
