Elementary:

We open our prayer, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

This day, when we celebrate the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, we hear in Matthew's Gospel (11:25-30 - adapted):

'Come to me, all you who are tired with heavy sad hearts, and I will give you rest. Accept my work and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in my heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my work is easy, and what I ask of you is not hard.

When we speak Jesus' message of peace, love, hope and forgiveness in our words and actions, then we truly show Jesus' love for every person and all creation.

In Jesus' actions of love and forgiveness we see what God wants us to know about how we are to live.  Jesus is God's Love wearing skin and bones – and so are we!

Let us pray:

God of the living Jesus,

You call us to speak of your love

with our words and our actions.

Help us to be better listeners…

Help us learn to be aware of the feelings of others…

Enable us to understand others in their joy and sadness.

And Lord may we become people of encouragement

And welcome to others.

In Jesus' name we pray.

Amen

Let us pray together by saying the words of the prophet Micah:

May we act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.

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


High School:

We open our prayer, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

This day, when we celebrate the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, we hear in Matthew's Gospel (11:25-30):

At that time Jesus said, 'I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

'Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

When we speak and live Jesus' message of peace, love, hope and forgiveness, then Lord speak truly of Jesus love for every person and all creation.

We pray:

God of the Living Word,

You call us to speak Your truth in all we do

Let us live in Your truth

Help us to be better listeners…

Help us learn to be aware of the emotions of others…

Enable us to empathize with others and feel with them in their joy and sadness.

And Lord may we become people of encouragement and welcome to others.

God of the Living Word, You call us to speak, write and listen honestly and sensitively

You call us to speak, write and listen honestly and sensitively

Let us live in Your truth.

God of the Living Word,

You call us to respond critically considering gospel values.

Let us live in Your truth.

In Jesus' name we pray.

Amen

Let us pray together by saying the words of the prophet Micah:

May we act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.

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