A prayer written by a mentor and friend:

Almighty and ever-living God, the words of Jesus your Son scandalized some of those who first heard them, and he was accused of blasphemy. Centuries later, we still seek to live within the outlandishness of Christ’s promises, promises so deep and abiding that they conquer all sin and death. Make us fearless in our claiming and proclaiming the truths that set us free. You live and reign forever and ever. Amen.

Rev. Paul Kollman, C.S.C.
