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 Holy Cross educators pause for prayer. An assigned reader announces the intentions and leads the prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance over the public address system. Check this page daily so that you may share in our prayers for the selected donors of the day, for each of us and for our world.

Today's Prayer

  • God of all creation, your goodness and glory shine forth through everything you have made. Everything in your creation is connected, for all share a common origin in your creating hand. Fill us with a spirit of praise, gratitude, wisdom and courage, that we might care for creation and not misuse it, ensure that its goods are shared in justice with all our brothers and sisters, and speak out on its behalf whenever it is threatened. Through the light of faith, help us to see this world, our common home, not as a resource to dominate and exploit, but as a gift to be cherished by all generations. Prompted by your Spirit, we ask this in the name of Jesus, through whom all creation was made. Amen.

Thought for the Day

From the writings of Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross:
  • "When we make resolutions, we should ask Jesus Christ, through Mary and Joseph, for the grace to be faithful to them." (Sermons)  
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
