A Prayer on Saint Patrick’s Day

(Prayer offered on the Public Address system for the entire La Salle Academy educational community on Friday morning, 17 March 2017)

Justin: Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God…


Justin: If you know anything about Mrs. Weber, you know that she always likes to start class with a quote. So, it would only be fitting to begin today at La Salle the same way, with a quote from Saint Patrick.

Mrs. Weber:  “I know for certain, that before I was humbled I was like a stone lying in deep mire, and he that is mighty came and in his mercy raised me up and, indeed, lifted me high up and placed me on top of the wall. And from there I ought to shout out in gratitude to the Lord for his great favors in this world and for ever, that the mind of man cannot measure.”

Justin:  Let us pray.  Dear Lord, may we always recognize, and give thanks for your presence in all that lifts us up, and allows us to see.  May we see your light in others, and may we never forget that we can be the light that they see.  May we feel you in someone’s smile, the sun that lights our days, the laughter of our friends, the feeling of family – in every sense of the word, in everything  that your love enables us to know, and all that we cannot even imagine.   Amen.


Saint John Baptist de La Salle….pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts….forever.
