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

Here is the link to today's video prayer: Oct. 22

  • God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    and the wisdom to know the difference.
    Amen.

Thought for the Day

From the writings of Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross:
  • Respectfully make your views known; ask for God's help to see whether your perspective is reasonable. (Exercises)
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
