NEW ICTC SERIES ON VOTING AND THE PRIMACY OF CONSCIENCE
This week we introduce "We the people and the Primacy of Conscience," a series that draws the best from our Constitution – “We the People,” and our Catholic Tradition – “The Primacy of Conscience,” to enhance our democratic participation. From March through October, ICTC will partner with different academic areas of campus; these presentations will provide constructs to help us listen to one another, envision a more just future, grow as advocates in our democracy and prepare ourselves to act as justice-seekers in the 2020 election season. Read more about the series on the ICTC website. The first two events are listed below!
THE BEGINNING OF LENT:
We offer this prayer as we enter into the seasons of Lent, primary elections, and an emerging global health crisis:
All praise be yours, God our Creator,
as we wait in joyful hope
for the flowering of justice
and the fullness of peace.
All praise for this day, this season.
By our weekly fasting and prayer
cast out the spirit of war, of fear and mistrust,
and make us grow hungry for human kindness, thirsty for solidarity
with all the people of your dear earth.
May all our prayer, our fasting and our deeds
be done in the name of Jesus. Amen
