Heralds of Evangelization

I'm back to thinking and preparing for not only our homeschooling, but also religious education at our parish for which I am a part. When I think about the awesome responsibility as a mother and teacher of our children I could almost panic! But, somehow the grace of God truly soothes the fretfulness. This year we will have an high school junior,(son) a high school freshman, (daughter), and a third grader (son), and our youngest son, who will turn four the first of October. Life keeps a'poppin' here! I submit this lovely prayer for catechists, but in particular for we moms who find themselves swept up in the wonder and awe of being the primary educators of their broods at home. May God bless you deeply, with peace and wisdom as you take on another formal year of schooling.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Pray for us!

Come Holy Spirit, inspire all religion teachers as they transmit the truth of faith with dedication and care to those put in their charge. Give them the wisdom and help they need as they help parents in the proper religious formation of children. Move them to love and transmit only that which can form true followers of the Teacher who was divine. Help them to be followers that continue to be Christlike models for all their students who in turn will edify others. Help them and others who assist in religious education to share generously their gifts, all for the glory of God. Through Christ our Lord, we pray. Amen.

I needed this prayer reminder this morning. I just read Karen Andes article on Catholic Exchange about the media and our children and I felt a familiar feeling of worry over this.
One day at a time, right?
