However, we reveal our Catholic identity even more through our great devotion to Mary, Mother of God. She is our Mother and in closeness to her, we become closer to Jesus. Upon his conversion to greater service to Christ, St. Ignatius held vigil with our Lady and chose to relinquish his sword and worldly possessions to her as he sought her guidance and support at the monastery in Montserrat, Spain. His devotion to Mary carried him through his early pilgrimage and his life. We, too, ask the intercession of our Lady and seek to follow her son more closely. Mary, our Lady of Guadalupe, is especially dear to the Brophy community as her image inspires us in prayer inside the chapel and watches over us outside the chapel.
Finally, our Catholic identity is lived here at Brophy as we encounter Jesus Christ in communion with the whole Church through the prayer of the Mass, receiving the Eucharist, receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation, seeking spiritual renewal on retreats, praying daily in gratitude and petition, serving the needy, giving in charity to local and global agencies, traveling on immersions to express solidarity with the world and contributing to the advocacy work of our diocese to promote the dignity of all life.
Brophy is proud of its Catholic, Jesuit heritage and gladly accepts the responsibility of being part of the Church in the modern world.
