The Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
‘Take a rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop’ Ovid
Take time to think – it is the source of power
Take time to play – it is the secret of perpetual youth
Take time to read – it is the fountain of wisdom
Take time to pray – it is the greatest power on earth
Take time to love and to be loved – it is a God-given privilege
Take time to be friendly – it is the road to happiness
Take time to laugh – it is the music of the soul
Take time to give – it is too short a day to be selfish
Take time to work – it is the price of success
Take time to do good – it is the key to heaven
(Pilgrimage, by J. Smith-Cameron)
Lord we give thanks for the beginnings of the summer holidays. Be with us in all that we do and keep us safe from all harm. May we return with renewed hope and vigour.
