Radical Prayer

Lord, enlighten my mind with truth;
Inflame my heart with love;
Inspire my will with courage;
Enrich my life with service
Pardon what I have been;
Sanctify what I am;
And order what I shall be.

The College motto "Nihil Ultra" means Nothing Beyond, a motto, significant and suggestive of a noble ideal, of an unconquerable hope, that should urge the Xavierian always to aim high.
