Elementary:

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

Last Saturday was the World Day of the Poor – a day Pope Francis instituted so that "throughout the world Christian communities can become an even greater sign of Christ's charity for the least and those most in need.

Charity means taking part in actions of loving-kindness toward all others (friends or enemies) This is a big order and we need God's help.

Let's pray for that help:

Dear God,

We thank you for giving us peaceful days

Days we get along with one another and share things together.

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.

Last Saturday was the World Day of the Poor – a day Pope Francis instituted so that " throughout the world Christian communities can become an even greater sign of Christ's charity for the least and those most in need.

Charity means participating in tangible acts of loving-kindness toward all others (friend or enemy) in unconditional and self-sacrificial ways. This is a big order and we need God's help.

Here is Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta thoughts:

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.
