In the spirit of St. Augustine who urged his followers to search for God together, consider next Sunday's Gospel which tells the story of John the Baptist. His actions draw the attention of religious leaders who send messengers to ask for his testimony. The passage concludes with John telling the Pharisees that the one for whom they are looking is already among them, but unrecognized. John’s testimony arises from his openness to the presence of God in his midst. He has been enabled to see hidden within his very surroundings what others have not yet seen. Perhaps the testimony of John invites us to recognize that the One we seek is already among as well. Could Christ be hidden in our midst? Spirit of God, open our eyes that we might see, and as we gain new sight, teach us to rejoice.

Get involved in action that seeks to bring about peace and justice in the world, learn about Catholic Social Teaching, and social justice advocacy. Campus Ministry sponsors Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week and CRS Ambassadors Program Program as a means to educate the Villanova community on current local and global issues.

In addition, Campus Ministry works in collaboration with Villanova’s Center for Peace & Justice Education, which offers an academic interdisciplinary program on topics of world peace and social justice as well as sponsors student groups affiliated with specific issues of justice.
