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

Today is the feast of St. Philip and James who were two of the twelve apostles who followed Jesus. 

Today we prayer for the virtues that we need in our school community to follow Jesus.

Spirit of Courage,

lead us from fear;

Spirit of Compassion,

lead us from selfishness;

Spirit of Justice,

lead us from persecution;

Spirit of Hope,

lead us from despair;

Spirit of Unity,

lead us from loneliness;

Spirit of Wisdom,

lead us from ignorance;

Spirit of Perseverance,

lead us from laziness;

Spirit of Reverence,

lead us from idols;

Spirit of Responsibility,

lead us from indifference;

Spirit of Honesty,

lead us from dishonesty.

During this Easter season, Holy Spirit, lead us and guide us.

Guide our schools and our world to a more peaceful and just existence. Amen.

In this month devoted to Mary we pray:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

This Canadian Mental Health Week we pray for all people and families struggling with issues of mental health.

This week is also Emergency Preparedness Week in Canada – and we need to remember that to be prepared for crazy events in our life means we need to work together – so we pray for good people to work together in unity.

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

Mary, the Mother of God, pray for us.

St. Philip and James, pray for us.
