River’s don’t drink their water

Trees don’t eat their own fruit

Sun doesn’t give heat for itself

Flowers doesn’t spread fragrance for themselves

Living for others, is the rule of Nature.

Life is good when you are happy.

But life is much better.

When others are happy because of you.          Pope Francis

Prayer before Exams


Dear Lord, as I take this exam, I thank you hat my value is not based on my performance, but on your great love for me. Come into my heart so that we can walk through this time together.

Help me, not only with this test, but the many tests of life that are sure to come my way. As I take this exam, bring back to my mind everything I studied and be gracious with what I have overlooked. Help me to remain focussed  and calm, confident in the facts and in my ability, and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me. Amen.

                        Salesians of Don Bosco, Ireland.
