Lord, Jesus, Divine Teacher,
Thank you for the special
to share your Word and Life
with my students today.
Fill me with your Holy Spirit
and bless me and my efforts
to be a true witness
of your Presence to them.
Sanctify all that I say and do.
Let my catechetical instruction
bring my students into a closer
relationship with you in prayer,
knowledge, and grace.
Help me to proclaim your
with passion and conviction.
Show me the way to guide them
toward accepting you as their
personal Lord and Savior in
imitation of Mary and the saints.
Together, may we celebrate
your unconditional love
now and always.
