Back to School!
It's that time of year!
Teachers are preparing, stores are restocking their supplies, and students are either sitting in excitement or absolute dread:
school is coming!
We know that this year is like no other. There's still fear and the unknown. But there are also great opportunities on the horizon and unseen ways that the Lord wants to stretch us and increase our trust in Him. Christ calls for our education to not be a mere repetition of facts but for the "
renewal of our mind, that we may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect
" (Rom 12:2)
Consider praying the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary alongside Bishop Barron in the video below for all the young people, teachers, and staff who will be returning to school soon:
“Grant me acuity to understand, capacity to retain, method and ease in study, insight in interpretation, and abundant grace of expression. Order the beginning, direct the progress, and perfect the completion of my work, you who are true God and Man and lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.”
St. Thomas Aquinas, prayer before study
All of our children return to school this week, attending either St. Denis - St. Columba School, Happy House, Ark and Dove or our fine Public Schools. Let us pray for a successful beginning to a new school year!
Parents with children in public schools - please do not forget to register them for Religious Education -
