In the spirit of St. Augustine, who urged his followers to search for God together, consider this reflection on Sunday's Gospel. In this Gospel, Jesus speaks to the crowds of the promise God made to him, that all who believe in him shall have eternal life.  On this Feast of All Souls, as we remember friends and family members that have passed, let us reflect on our entrance into eternal life. Autumn is the perfect time to celebrate this Feast, as the leaves fall and squirrels gather and store up food for the winter ahead, we are reminded to reflect on our own mortality.  It should not be a season of dreariness, but one of hope and joy, as Jesus promises eternal life to all.  How do you envision eternal life and how are you preparing for it?  As the days grow darker and colder, let us remember the joy and hope of Christ’s promise.

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.
