Thank you to all who prayed with us for peace after the 12 noon mass. The service was prayerful and reverent. It was, I think, the first time the Blessed Sacrament has been exposed for veneration in our gymatorium. We still, of course, cannot use incense anywhere on the campus since both the chapel and the gym are wired with smoke detectors which immediately object to such things as burning incense.
It was good for us to unite our minds and hearts in worldwide prayer for peace in Syria, the Middle East and the world.
Let us persist in prayer for the security of the world and the dignity of all God's peoples.
