Elementary:

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

Today we can celebrate the Memorial of St Padre Pio. Padre Pio was born in southern Italy over a hundred years ago. He is known for his love of God and his wisdom and care for those he met.  With Padre Pio we can trust Jesus and God's plan to make all things good in the world – and to stop worrying about so many things.

Let us pray:

God be in my head

and in my understanding.

God be in my eyes

and in my looking.

God be in my mouth

and in my speaking.

God be in my heart

and in my thinking.

God be at my coming

and at my leaving.

Christ Jesus, awaken us

from what is drab and dreary,

and renew in us your exciting gifts of hope. Amen.

Last night began the Jewish time of Sukkot.  This is a time to give thanks for blessings and for God's presence in creation. With hearts full of hope and thanksgiving we pray the words Jesus taught us:

Our Father,

Who art in heaven, 
Hallowed be Thy Name. 
Thy Kingdom come. 
Thy Will be done,

on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. 
And forgive us our trespasses, 
as we forgive those

who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

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

Amen.


High School: 

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

Today we can celebrate the Memorial of St Padre Pio. Padre Pio was born in southern Italy over a hundred years ago. He is known for his love of God, wisdom and care for those he met as well as the gift of the stigmata, which has never been explained (The stigmata are the crucifixion wounds appearing one someone's body.)  Like Padre Pio we can trust Jesus and God's plan to make all things good in the world – and stop worrying about so many things.

Let us pray:

God be in my head

and in my understanding.

God be in my eyes

and in my looking.

God be in my mouth

and in my speaking.

God be in my heart

and in my thinking.

God be at my end

and at my departing.

O Christ, our Morning Star,

Splendour of Light Eternal,

shining with the glory of the rainbow,

come and waken us

from what is drab and dreary,

and renew in us your gift of hope. Amen.
