We sign ourselves in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy
On this Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary we honour Mary the mother of Jesus. She is patron of our local Church called the Archdiocese of Regina with its center being Holy Rosary Cathedral and of RCSD's Holy Rosary School.
The Rosary is a beautiful way of praying with Mary and Jesus. If you don't know how to pray the rosary, ask your family or teachers sometime this month—it is a way in which the whole family or class can pray together.
Our prayer today celebrates the wisdom of saying "yes" to God like Mary did:
In a true spirit of Compassion
Help us accept each other as Jesus accepts us;
Teach us to embrace each person as child of God.
Lord help us to see your presence in our lives
and help us believe that we ourselves are accepted by you,
meant for loving and called to live lives of great meaning.
Teach us your lessons Lord in our daily life
As we struggle to discover who we are
As we search for hope and faith.
Teach us to care for all people, not just for some;
To love everyone just as they are
and for who they may become!
May we follow Jesus' acceptance of the goodness of other people in our school today.
God bless our efforts. Amen.
Let us close our prayer with the Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, The Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women
and Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, mother of God,
Pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death. Amen.
In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
