College of St. Mary Magdalen consecrated to Sacred Heart

.- The College of St. Mary Magdalen’s faculty, students, administrators and staff consecrated the school to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on Nov. 20, the Feast of Christ the King.

During the consecration, members of the Warner, N.H.-based college community asked Jesus that the college may “play her role in the academy and in the Church with honor, with humility, and with an unfailing love of learning and the desire for God.”

“The Sacred Heart of Jesus remains a powerful symbol of the love of God made manifest in the Person of Jesus Christ, who assumed our human nature without loss of his divinity,” said college chaplain Fr. Neil J. Roy, who led the consecration at Our Lady Queen of Apostles Chapel after solemn sung vespers.

The consecration “marks a deepening of awareness on the part of students, administrators, and faculty, that as a part of the Church at study we who belong to the college of St. Mary Magdalen have a duty to pursue the Truth in the person of Jesus Christ and to base our habits and behavior on him who can neither deceive nor be deceived.”

The prayer of consecration asked for “a desire to unite knowledge with wisdom and to live together in loving unity,” the college reports.

Other petitions asked for “honesty in our studies, sincerity of heart, and zeal for thy Kingdom.”

Students and faculty prepared for the consecration by praying a novena in honor of the Sacred Heart, beginning nine days before the feast.
