Prayer of the Day

The Spes Unica is the symbol for the Congregation of Holy Cross and is Latin for "Hail to the Cross, our only hope."

Each school day at the beginning of second period, Hoban students and staff pause for prayer. An assigned reader announces the intentions and leads the prayer over the public address system. Check daily so that you may share in our prayers for the selected donors of the day, for each of us and for our world.

Prayer of the Day

  • On Sept. 15, we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, the patroness of the Congregation of Holy Cross.  We pray in a special way for her intercession and for the members of the Congregation of Holy Cross. 

  • God, grant us the patience to live as Our Lady of Sorrows did, a perfect model of hope at the foot of the cross. Thank you for providing us such a profound example of love and acceptance of your will. We don’t have to bear our daily crosses alone, for you have given us your son, Jesus Christ, and his mother, Mary, to help us find our way. Please bless the Congregation of Holy Cross and all of its lay collaborators, benefactors, and friends as we celebrate our patroness today. Amen.onors of the Day

Thought for the Day

From the writings of Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross:
  • Our sublime, but difficult, mission should be fulfilled with that happy blending of gentleness and firmness, prudence and vigilance, which is the secret of all successful education. (Letters)).
The thoughts for each day are taken from Gravitating Toward God, compiled by Joel Giallanza, CSC, and published by the Holy Cross Institute at St. Edward's University, 3001 S. Congress Ave. CMB 757, Austin, Texas 78704-6489 USA
