Message from Pope Benedict XVI on Catholic higher education
“I don’t believe in accidents. I believe in Divine Providence. If you’re reading my words right now, it’s no accident. God is calling you to look and discern and pray and to say, ‘Maybe I’m supposed to be here. Maybe I’m supposed to be contributing in some way to what God is calling this place to be!’ And I’m hoping that you’re going to come and join us!”
St. Joseph Adoration Chapel on the campus of Belmont Abbey College is always open for prayer. The Blessed Sacrament is exposed from 5am to 10pm. More adorers are needed. Please find more information and contact numbers here.

“Sport, properly directed, develops character, makes a man courageous, a generous loser, and a gracious victor; it refines the senses, gives intellectual penetration, and steels the will to endurance. It is not merely a physical development then. Sport, rightly understood, is an occupation of the whole man, and while perfecting the body as an instrument of the mind, it also makes the mind itself a more refined instrument for the search and communication of truth and helps man to achieve that end to which all others must be subservient, the service and praise of his Creator. ”
– Pope Pius XII
