A committee of staff, faculty and students, gathered prayers for the first edition Saint Xavier University prayer book, Via, Veritas, Vita. The title of the prayer book, Latin for "Way, Truth, Life," is taken from the Saint Xavier University Seal and conveys the true meaning of prayer: the search for the way, the truth and the life. The prayer book represents the diversity of faith traditions present in the University community. Included in the collection are traditional Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and Hindu prayers, as well as original compositions from staff, faculty and students.
The prayer books are distributed to students, faculty and staff at various events throughout the year, and are also available inside the Mercy Ministry Center.
