Happy Pentecost

Dear all,

 

Happy Pentecost!

 

It seems timely that we celebrate this great feast on the day before we embark upon this next phase of schooling.  Archbishop John Wilson given us some reflections on today's reading so, rather than sending you my thoughts, I invite you to click on the attached link to hear his words:  https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MzqUiWb4vj8riXuxdK8rw9lQ4jxmjvU_

 

Tomorrow is the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church.  You may wish to join with the pupils and staff in a reflection for that day.  You'll find the link below:

A PRAYER FOR PROTECTION IN TIME OF PANDEMIC

A PRAYER FOR PROTECTION IN TIME OF PANDEMIC

O Mary,

you always brighten our path

as a sign of salvation and of hope.

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,

who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain

while remaining steadfast in faith.

O loving Mother,

you know what we need,

and we are confident you will provide for us

as at Cana in Galilee.

Intercede for us with your Son Jesus,

the Divine Physician,

for those who have fallen ill,

for those who are vulnerable,

and for those who have died.

Intercede also for those charged with

protecting the health and safety of others

and for those who are tending to the sick

and seeking a cure.

Help us, O Mother of Divine Love,

to conform to the will of the Father

and to do as we are told by Jesus,

who took upon himself our

sufferings and carried our sorrows,

so as to lead us, through the Cross,

to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen.

Under thy protection we seek refuge,

O Holy Mother of God.

In our needs, despise not our petitions,

but deliver us always from all dangers,

O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

A prayer of self-offering

A prayer of self-offering

Lord, let me see with Your eyes and hear with Your ears,

That I may know what You are calling me to do.

Grant me the wisdom to guide my thoughts according to Your will, and the grace to share Your love with others, no matter the circumstances.

Through Christ our Lord,

Amen.
