JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE.
Thursday, April 5, 2001.
 
 

Met according to adjournment, at eleven o’clock A.M., in an Informal Session, with Mr. Sullivan of Braintree in the Chair (having been appointed by the Speaker, under authority conferred by Rule 5, to perform the duties of the Chair).

Prayer was offered by the Reverend Robert F. Quinn, C.S.P., Chaplain of the House, as follows:

Eternal God, the Lord of History and the Ruler of the Universe, we turn our thoughts and attention to You and ask for Your guidance in personal and legislative matters. We believe that You watch over us every moment of the day. This weekend the Jewish Community and many Christian churches begin a solemn religious week. The Jewish Community observes Passover, a religious historical event which recalls the exodus of the Israelites from the land of Egypt. The Christian churches celebrate Palm and Easter Sundays, great religious happenings. These celebrations should fill our hearts and minds with wonderful memories of the past and a firm resolve to deepen our religious commitment to our own religious faith and practices.

Grant Your blessings to the Speaker, the members and employees of this House and their families. Amen

At the request of the Chair (Mr. Sullivan of Braintree), the members, guests and employees joined with him in reciting the pledge of allegiance to the flag.
