#CTKCARES PRAYER RESOURCES – from our friends at the Becket (2nd-6th November)

MISSION STATEMENT CHALLENGES


Our word of the week is

SAINTS

The Saints are a fascinating part of our church history and tradition. A saint is one of those men or women who in their life, and often their death, have set us an example of how to live a life for God.

Saints are ordinary people who have inspired others, followed in Jesus’ footsteps and stood up for their faith. We all have the potential to be saints!…They were not all perfect. Often they made bad choices and mistakes in their lives before turning back to God. They give hope to us all that we can be better people and that, one day, we may become saints ourselves!

WORD OF THE WEEK

The word of the week is Saints! On Sunday we celebrated the feast of All Saints Day. This is a very special feast in the Catholic Church’s Liturgical calendar where we remember and celebrate all the holy men and women who have died and are believed to be heaven with God.

We all have the potential to become saints! Saints are ordinary people who have followed in Jesus’ footsteps and stood up for their faith.

In this week’s WOTW video we explore some of the significant saints linked to our school community.

 

 

PRAYER

Let us pray:

Dear Lord,

Help us to hear Your calling and be inspired to follow in Jesus’ footsteps.

May we keep faith during both the good times and the challenging times.

Amen.

REFLECTION ACTIVITY

Read it. Think about it. Discuss it.

Often Saints have something called a Patronage – it’s a group of people or a situation that they have a special connection with. These patronages give us someone to turn to in certain situations to ask for help and guidance.

Today we have a short quiz to test your knowledge on some of our Catholic Saints! Maybe you could jot down your answers as you go through the questions in your planner with your form.

Have any of you heard of these saints before? Do any of the answers surprise you?

REFLECTION ACTIVITY

Read it. Think about it. Discuss it.

 

When we think of saints we often think of people who lived and died many years ago. But there are modern day saints here on earth now, in our Churches, in our town centres and even in our own school buildings!

 

What do you think is special about belonging to a Catholic School community?
What is different and unique about a Catholic School?
What qualities do you think a saint has in the 21st Century?

Think of someone in your head who you think is a modern day saint in our community and spend a moment praying for them.

PRAYER

Let us pray:

Dear Lord, 

Thank you for the example of the saints. 

Help me to follow in their footsteps and devote myself, my service and all that I do, to You. 

Through Christ our Lord,

Amen.
