Thursday, May 9th



We are called to love as people of mercy. “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.” (Luke 6:36) As we continue to journey through the Easter Season, let us reflect on the words of Pope Francis in his 2013 Easter message. Pope Francis stated: “Let us accept the grace of Christ’s resurrection! Let us be renewed by God’s mercy, let us be loved by Jesus, let us enable the power of His love to transform our lives too; and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish.” 

God of mercy and love,
You have blessed us with goodness and compassion.
Inspire us to live out Your call to speak and act as people of mercy.
Help us to treat each other with kindness.
Teach us to be patient and forgiving.
Guide us to love as You love; to be merciful as You are merciful.
Make our school a place of warmth, safety, and welcome, 

where forgiveness and acceptance are modeled daily. 
May our words and actions reflect Your mercy 

and serve as loving reminders that we are all Your precious children. 
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
