Safety First

This week we welcome students from Marist Fuerstenzell, a Marist School in Germany, who are part of the German Exchange Program.

Erwin Gierl, teacher and chaperone, gave this mornings prayer:

“Safety first”, the pilot had said and so we arrived more than one hour later in Atlanta due to technical problems.

What can make me safe in my life?  Money?  Success?  Possessions?  They are all fleeting.

What makes me safe is faith – though I can only believe and not prove.  But knowing that our Lord is always with me gives me strength and the feeling of safety.

Thank you for praying for Marist Fuerstenzell.

Thank you for your warm welcome here in Atlanta.

Thank you for making this exchange program possible for our young people.

Knowing that I have friends all over the world makes me safe.

The Lord’s Prayer
(German)

Vater unser im Himmel,
geheiligt werde dein Name;
dein Reich komme;
dein Wille geschehe,
wie im Himmel so auf Erden.
Unser tägliches Brot gib uns heute.
Und vergib uns unsere Schuld,
wie auch wir vergeben unsern Schuldigern;
und führe uns nicht in Versuchung,
sondern erlöse uns von dem Bösen.

Denn dein ist das Reich und die Kraft
und die Herrlichkeit in Ewigkeit.
Amen.

Mary, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.
