President's Christmas Message

As we re-live in faith the ancient
longing for the coming of the One
desired of all nations, earnest bands of
people struggle in many corners of the world
to strengthen a fragile peace.

With the arrival of the Christmas season
let us ask that the colleagueship we
enjoy in this university community
be increasingly rooted in the
inviolable worth God's coming has
conferred on each of us;
and let us pray that God's peace
increasingly grace peoples of the world
who suffer enmities and divisions.

May the blessings of Christmas extend
to you and your loved ones
throughout the New Year.

- J. Donald Monan, SJ
