I give thanks to my Creator for this wonderful life where each of us has the opportunity to learn things we could not know by any other means.

The end of another school year is a good time to look back and reflect on the things we have to be thankful for. The friendships we have made or deepened the increased levels of knowledge and understanding we have achieved. There are probably so many things we could give thanks for that we could not even begin to list them.

We thank you Father for the blessings of love and life;

for our intelligence and learning.

May we always use them in the service of others.

Strengthen our faith in you so that doubts will never overcome it.

Grant us a hope that will ensure that we see beyond the hardships we will

face and give us a love that is sincere.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
