The tradition of Crusader Team Masses Continues

The pictures below are from my mass with the CMH wrestling team on last Thursday afternoon. I celebrated a mass with the Hockey and Girls Basketball teams on Friday morning.






As is also part of the tradition, we finished mass with a recitation of the CMH Team prayer --


Heavenly Father,Our Life, Health, and Abilities are gifts from you.

Give us the courage to devote each,not to our own gain, but to your glory.

Let us compete todaywith all our heart, mind, body, and soul.

If you choose,allow victory to come as a blessing and reward;but, if necessary, assist us to learn integrity in defeat.

Keep all players safe this day.

Allow us to give our best as a memorial to those who have given their all for our sake.

St. Sebastian, patron of athletes, R:/ Pray for us.

Our Lady of Memorial, R:/ Pray for us.

Our Lady of Victory, R:/ Pray for us.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
