6 June: Day IV – Loving and creative in the work of education
WORD OF GOD: Jesus realized the intention of their hearts and took a child and placed it by his side and said to them, “Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.” (Lk 9: 47-48)
OUR CONSTITUTION: Urged by the love of Christ, we choose to express our mission through ministry directed toward education. For us, education means enabling persons to reach the fullness of their potential as individuals created in God’s image and assisting them to direct their gifts toward building the earth.
(YAS, C 22)
LET US PRAY: Lord Jesus Christ! Blessed Sister Maria Antonina bestowed motherly love upon children, especially the poor and abandoned, and directed their hearts to God. Youth saw in her a mother who was worried about their maturation into true humanity. We ask you to grant us the grace to be able to support the children and young people of today’s world in their development to the fullness of humanity.
Blessed Sister Maria Antonina,
loving and creative
in the work of education,
PRAY FOR US!
