Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us!
You have made me to know You, to love You, to serve You,
and thereby to find and to fulfill myself.
I know that You are in all things,
and that every path can lead me to You.
But of them all, there is one especially
by which You want me to come to You.
Since I will do what You want of me,
I pray You, send your Holy Spirit to me: into my mind,
to show me what You want of me; into my heart,
to give me the determination to do it,
and to do it with all my love, with all my mind,
and with all my strength right to the end.
Today we also celebrate the Anniversary of First Profession of Brother Benjamin Knapp, S.M. Brother Benjamin professed his first vows of poverty, chastity and obedience 15 years ago today in the Society of Mary.
Throughout those years he has been involved in the apostolate of education at Chaminade High School in Mineola, New York. He has taught Earth Science and Physics. He has also assisted the Province as the Director of Meribah - Chaminade Retreat House in Muttontown, New York. Congratulations on many years of service to the Church and Our Lady!
May the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spririt be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.
