Reflection

On this day, 24th March 1980, Archbishop Oscar Romero was celebrating Mass in his cathedral when he was shot dead. He was archbishop of San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador, a country in Central America – ruled by an extreme right-wing government, backed by the army, and well-known for repressing and torturing and murdering its citizens.

Six days later, on 30th March, thousands attended Archbishop Romero’s funeral, gathering in the square in front of the cathedral. Even there, at the funeral of the murdered Archbishop, 20 people were shot dead by the army, despite the international news media who were present to report whatever they saw.

Prayer

Lord, we bring before you
all who are imprisoned unjustly and all who are tortured. We think of those people who live in fear of injustice and repression.We pray that the minds of those who abuse others
may be turned to what is good and honourable. May those of us who live in freedom not take our heritage for granted, but be of good influence
in leading others to value one another as brothers and sisters. 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.

God of love, 
I know that you are the source of all
that is good and graced in my life.
Help me to move from the life of sin
to which I so often cling,
into the new life of grace you offer me.
You know what I need to prepare for your kingdom.
Bless me with those gifts. In Jesus name,

Amen.

Prayer

Lord, help me to have the kind of powerful faith that doesn’t give way to doubt when things appear to go wrong. I have faith in You and that You are a good God. I have faith in Your love for me. I have faith that You are the God of the impossible. Help me to believe that You will do the impossible in my life. Help me to have faith every time I pray, that You will hear my prayer and that You will answer it in Your perfect timing and according to Your perfect will for my life.

In Jesus’ name.

Amen.
