Elementary:

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

Today is also known as the United Nations International Day for Tolerance which was created as a worldwide campaign for open-mindedness and non-violence.  In other words, it's a day to welcome all people and find peaceful ways of living together.

Today's reflection is about having openness towards those who are struggling to accept others and the gifts they are.

Dear God,

We thank you for giving us your peace.

Help us to spread peace at home and at school

by loving and caring for one another.

Help us to spread peace by listening to one another,

even when we don't agree.

Help us to spread peace by sharing our time

with those who are lonely and who need a friend.

Help us to spread peace by thinking and praying

for children who have no food or

who are frightened and live in fear.

Let us pray every day for peace

for our families, for our friends

and for ourselves.

Amen.

We close our prayer today in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of

the Holy Spirit. Amen.


High School: ​

We begin our prayers and reflections in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today is also known as the United Nations International Day for Tolerance. The United Nations Year for Tolerance in 1995 led to the launching of a worldwide campaign for tolerance and non-violence. The Day for Tolerance grew out of the momentum of that year.

Today's reflection is about having openness towards those who are struggling to accept others and the gifts they can offer to everyone everywhere.

This prayer is adapted from a reflection by Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta:

Anyway…

People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.

Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.

Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.

Succeed anyway

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.

Be honest and frank anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.

Do good anyway.

The biggest people with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the

smallest people with the smallest minds.

Think big anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.

Build anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you 'll get knocked down.

Give the world the best you've got anyway.

​We close our prayer today in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of

the Holy Spirit. Amen.​
