Elementary:

We sign ourselves in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Listen to the gospel of Luke (10:38-42):

… he (Jesus) entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to what he was saying. But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, 'Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me.' But the Lord answered her, 'Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her.'

Work will always need to be done. Jesus asks us to build friendships with him and others by taking his love and forgiveness to the world. Some people will build friendships while others will gather "things" and "stuff".  We are to always live as people of love forgiveness and peace, making Jesus present to others in our words and actions.

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.​


High School:

We sign ourselves in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Listen to the gospel of Luke (10:1ff):

…  the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go. He said to them, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborer's into his harvest. Go on your way. … Whatever house you enter, first say, "Peace to this house!"

Jesus loves all people equally. He asks us to take his love and forgiveness to the world. Some people will accept it while others either cannot or will not.  We are to always live as people of love, forgiveness and peace as we make Jesus present in our words and actions.

Let us pray:

Loving God

We thank you for the gift of our lives.

Help us to be people who bring hope, love and forgiveness to all people

Beginning in our classrooms today

We pray for our Jewish friends who begin this evening Yom Kippur also known as Day of Atonement, the holiest day of the year for the Jews. Its central themes are atonement and repentance.
