Your faith is like a single flame from a match stick,
What seems like an insignificant light in the darkness
Sheds light enough for others to find their way
And so it is for parents, teachers, leaders and directors of Religious Formation and Education.
You nourish your little flame with a community of faith believers,
With participation in the Church,
With your study of the Church,
With your prayers and with your growing relationship with God.
In your words and actions children and adults alike will not only learn the ways of the Church
But will see the Light of Christ in your eyes and desire to find it in their own.
As you grow in your faith and continue on your journey
May you find the strength and wisdom to share your flame with others.
May God continue to be the oxygen that allows your flame to
Grow and never be extinguished,
May God continue to whisper His wisdom in your ears,
Breathe life into your words
And shower you with His grace of unconditional love
So that you may share it with all whom you encounter
All the days of your life. Amen
