Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman

O, God, our Father, remembering your beloved servant John Henry Cardinal Newman and his love for learning in service to Christ and the Church, bless our efforts to found an academy molded by his spirit and insights, guided by faith and reason, and dedicated to the splendor of Truth. Grant that we may always be a center for study and reflection, the intellectual and moral virtues, and the advancement of knowledge in the light of Revelation.

Seeking the intercession of Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, we pray in the name of Christ the Lord. Amen.
