Yesterday at Mass, last night at family prayer, and very early this morning, we prayed for Number Three. His very first day of teaching school is happening as I type this--and the was quite anxious about it.
As you can see in this Facebook post:
I pray that the day is going well, that he is finding that his natural calling to work with children is coming in very handy indeed, and that it is all somewhat simpler and easier than he imagined!
I pray that his students are cheerful and helpful, and that the wonderful atmosphere he has found in the school so far will continue offering him the support he needs to excel in the classroom.
May his patron saints Saint Augustine, Saint Benedict and Saint Michael come to his aid.
