MARY, WE OFFER YOU OUR STUDIES, our labors, our difficulties for Your intentions for our school year. You have told us that as youth we are in a difficult situation. Please be with us. Be our teacher as You taught Jesus and His little friends. Possess our teachers as well as our hearts to hear them. Teach us and help us to understand that the most important lesson to learn is not from a book, but how to love. We desire to possess wisdom and all the little lessons You and Joseph taught Jesus. We consecrate ourselves and this school day to You and Joseph, that purity, holiness, love and attentiveness may dominate our hearts throughout the day.
We entrust to You our greatest treasure, our innocence, and ask you to guard over and protect it with all the might of Heaven. We pray for You to be Queen of our school and Joseph its guardian, and that You fill the classroom with angels. Then we will know with confidence that peace, the King of Peace, Jesus, will dwell with us throughout the day. Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and the angels take possession of us, of our school, of our teachers, of our parents, so that we all may become as You wish. Amen.
