We begin our prayer, In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Let us pray:
Help us to embrace your truth;
Teach us to embrace hope and commitment
and live our lives into the future.
God of Light and Wisdom,
thank you for giving us
minds that can know,
hearts that can love,
and Catholic Schools in which
faith, hearts and minds become one!
Help us to keep learning every day of our lives--
no matter what the subject may be.
Let us be convinced that all knowledge leads to you
and let us know how to find you and love you in all the things You have made.
Encourage us when the studies are difficult
and when we are ready to give up
Help us bring a deep commitment
and sense of responsibility to our studies.
Enlighten us when our brains are slow
and help us to grasp the truth held out to us.
Give us the grace to put faith and knowledge to use
in building a civilization of love
which is Your Kingdom on earth
