Sixth Grade Academy students participated in the annual Blessing of the Bibles on Thursday, August 22.
Fr. Duncan spoke to the students about reverence and how to care for the Bible and delivered a blessing:
“Lord God, may these writings give us deep understanding of You and of ourselves. May it strengthen our love for You. May it lead us to active concern for our brothers and sisters.”
Fr. Duncan also prayed that the students might “study the scriptures in such a way that they may make the prayer of Jeremiah their own:
“When I found your words I devoured them — they became my joy and the happiness of my heart.” Jeremiah 15:16
