This prayer was sent to the principals in the Milwaukee Archdiocese from Dr. Cepelka. I share it with you-to assure you that as educators we recommit ourselves to reverencing the children you entrust to us. Blessings, Dr. Lichter
“Justice shall flourish in his time and fullness of peace forever.” Psalm 72:7
We enter this third week of Advent
with grief-filled hearts,
preparing places and spaces of peace
for those who need that gift today,
while together we remember
the 26 holy innocents who lost their lives
In special solidarity
with educators everywhere,
and with ignited Advent hope,
we recommit ourselves
teaching and reverencing
the children in our care.
Come, Lord Jesus.
