Elementary:

In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Today we remember St. Scholastica, the patron saint of nuns, education, and convulsive children, and it is she who is often invoked against storms and rain. Scholastica developed and nurtured the women's branch of the what came to be known as the Benedictine monastic movement. Here in Saskatchewan the Benedictine Monastery at St. Peter's Abbey in Muenster – one of the few in the world and a great place to visit and speak with a monk!

Scholastica lived her life for the love of God and others so today let's focus on random acts of kindness. Do a kind deed for someone just because it is a good thing to do – a Jesus-like loving thing to do. Don't ask for any praise or reward. Just act kindly to others.

This week is teacher and staff appreciation week. How can you show your kindness and appreciation for the teachers and staff at your school?  Maybe start simply by praying for them every day this week.

We pray:

Lord help us learn to love more so that we can:

Listen better,

Understand more,

Care more,

Welcome others more,

Help more,

And share more. 

St. Scholastica prayer for us as we look for ways to share love, life and faith, we continue our day in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

We pray:

Lord of wisdom, help us learn to love more so that we can:

Listen better,

Understand more,

Care more,

Welcome others more,

And share more. 

We close with the Serenity Prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.

Looking for wholeness we continue our day in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
