Happy Patronal Feastday to the CSC!
I almost forgot to wish all of our dear friends and spiritual fathers in the Congregation of Holy Cross a happy patronal feastday! Our Lady of Sorrows is the patron saint of the Holy Cross priests, the same order that runs the University of Notre Dame. We are so blessed to count several of them as friends of our family, and have been blessed by the ministry of even more! They are truly "men with hope to bring."
(Three precious CSC friends and spiritual fathers to our family concelebrated at our wedding.)
I love their motto, and I hold it dear in my heart as a daily reminder of where my hope truly lies:
Ave Crux, Spes Unica
Hail the Cross, our only hope!
Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us!
