The Society of Jesus, since its founding in 1540 by Saint Ignatius of Loyola, has taken its cue from Solomon, and at the beginning of each academic year has asked God to give its faculty and students the gift of wisdom. This petition is made in the context of a “Mass of the Holy Spirit,” celebrated at all Jesuit high school, college, and university campuses across the United States, as well as numerous other Jesuit educational institutions world-wide. We realize that we at John Carroll represent different religious backgrounds and values, but today we unite in one communal quest for wisdom.  May the God of all understanding give us that great gift of wisdom and compassion.
