Saint Jerome
O Lord, you have given us your word for a light to shine upon our path; grant us so to meditate on that word, and follow its teaching, that we may find in it the light that shines more and more until the perfect day.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
