College student Shannon Hickey won the James Keller Award at last year’s Christopher Awards ceremony for starting a ministry for the homeless called “Mychal’s Message” when she was 11-years-old. It was created in honor of family friend, Father Mychal Judge, the first person killed on the ground at the World Trade Center on 9/11.
Shannon has been studying Communications and Broadcasting in college, and she recently put together this video about “Mychal’s Message” and the work they do. It’s definitely worth a look.
Also – Father Mychal’s prayer would be a great addition to your daily prayer ritual:
Mychal’s Prayer (copyright Holy Name Province):
Lord, take me where You want me to go,
let me meet who You want me to meet,
tell me what You want me to say,
and keep me out of Your way.
