We bless our year in prayer by blessing our selves in the name of
the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
God of day and God of night,
You protected us through the night
and brought us to the dawn of a new day.
Help us to live in Your light
Throughout this school year may we show a spirit of cooperation and courage with everyone we meet.
This we ask in Jesus' name.
We reflect on how Mary watched Jesus as he visited his people and worked many wondrous things. She also saw how he was treated poorly by some yet he still loved all. We look to Mary as an example of what it means to follow Jesus through the happy and sad times of our life and pray for her help too:
We see our Holy Mother’s prayers:
Full of grace,
The Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women
And blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, mother of God,
Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
