Thursday 22nd June: St Thomas More

Next year we will have some new tutor group names, one of them is St Thomas More, whose feast day is today.

The Sign of the Cross

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

Scripture

“Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal which comes upon you to prove you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in so far as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when His glory is revealed.” – 1 Peter 4:12

Reflection

Prayer

O God, who in martyrdom
have brought true faith to its highest expression,
graciously grant
that, strengthened through the intercession
of Saints John Fisher and Thomas More,
we may confirm by the witness of our life
the faith we profess with our lips.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Dear Father in heaven,

Thank you for the gift of life you have given us. Thank you for the people you have made us to be. Help us to live our lives to the full.

Open our hearts to receive your love so that we, in return, can show love and respect to everyone in our school community, our families and our friends.

Send us your Holy Spirit so we can achieve excellence in our learning and do our personal best in all areas of school life.

May we always live, love and learn through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our Lady Queen of Peace pray for us.

St Joseph pray for us

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