Stritch opens 2021-22 academic year
Cardinal Stritch University opened the 2021-22 academic year by welcoming students for Move-In Day activities and Orientation, which included Convocation and New Student Service Day.
This Blessings of the Brain prayer was prayed over the new students during Convocation:
God, Creator of all things and of human intellect,
bless these students with orderly thinking,
curiosity for the work of your creation,
and a creative spirit in their studies.
Lord Jesus, Son of God, help them remain focused.
Give them eyes to see the connections between their study and its value for life and service to others.
Energize them and get their brains working.
Send your Holy Spirit upon them to give them flexibility of thought and expression,
good memory and calm nerves,
the ability to organize their thinking
and comprehend theories and facts that they may express them with flair and clarity.
May your Spirit help them to overcome moments of discouragement and to rejoice in their accomplishments.
God our Wisdom, in whom we move, live, and have our being,
bless your sons and daughters.
Bless their brains and every part of their lives.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
