As the University counts down to Christmas Day and the semester draws to a close, we invite you to take a look at our UMAS Advent Calendar for 2013. Each day of Advent, another part of the picture will be revealed by pressing the button on that particular day!
Also, be sure to click on each part of the picture that is revealed for a special reflection by one of our community members. We have had students, faculty, and staff be a part of this special project so that they may share their reflections on particular readings for each day of Advent and how Scripture influences their lives, especially during this holiday season.
You can view reflections for previous days by clicking on the various windows and images in the photo! A new image will be made available each day, which you can reveal by clicking on the number! Be sure to then click on the image to view the Gospel reflection for that day!
The staff of University Ministry and Service would also like to wish you and yours a very safe, happy, and peaceful holiday season!
Prayer for the Philippines
God, who quiets great winds and rough seas,
We ask your protection for the people of the Philippines.
Comfort them in their fear.
Stay close to them in their danger.
And we ask the intercession of Your Blessed Mother
That together with her and with all your holy saints
We may stand in solidarity with our Filipino brothers and sisters
through their darkest hour
through their longest night.
Give us the courage to remain steadfast
To reach out to each of them in their need
To comfort them in their sorrow
To hold them as closely as You hold them
To see them through to morning.
Plans for responding to this tragedy, especially as our fellow Lasallians are affected, will be developed in the next several weeks.
