Message from the President
President Michael J. Graham, S.J. speaks on war
Message from the President:
At this very difficult time in our nation and our world, I ask
members of the Xavier University family to come together as people of
faith and extend prayers to all those in harm's way.
Please remember the people of Iraq, who will feel the direct impact
of this war. We pray for all members of our military, especially
Xavier students, staff and alumni. We pray for other members of the
Xavier family who may be living, working or studying in the affected
region. We pray for each other, students, faculty and staff here on
campus. May we join together, relying on our faith and the goodness
of our God as well as the goodness in each of our hearts, to see us
through this time of crisis.
We also pray for world leaders, asking God to give them wisdom,
compassion and guidance. We pray for innocent people in Iraq, the
United States and throughout the world. We pray for a quick end to
this conflict and a peaceful life for all people as a result.
Please know that all of you will be in my own thoughts and prayers
during this time.
Michael Graham, S.J.
