Reflection for the Start of new School Year
What will this year bring?
We do not know; It will likely bring us its usual times of work and play, experiences of learning, newness, success and challenges, All things that are part of school life.
It’s a new beginning; The planting of a seed that will grow for a year, The seed of fruit that will blossom in times to come. It offers new hope; Hope for good work, for successful results, For friendship, for fun, for learning.
In this coming year, may there be learning, prayer, and fun. May there be hard work, faith and friendship. May no one in school be lonely; May no one be left out in class; May no one suffer because of how others treat them.
As we begin this new school year in hope, in prayer and friendship, May God begin it with us, be with us during it, And successfully bring it to its conclusion.
