Footprints in the Snow

 

One white and wintry Christmas Eve in a village long ago. A young child took a journey,

 

leaving footprints in the snow. Clutched within her tiny hand she carried a small tattered heart, fashioned from some scraps of cloth, wrapped in the charm of childlike art. A manger scene of wood and straw was the child’s destination. Her only Christmas wish, to join Christ’s birthday celebration.

 

She placed her precious handmade gift upon the straw with care and before she turned to leave, whispered a simple prayer. The villagers who stood nearby recall that night with awe, retelling every detail of the miracle they saw…A second set of footprints

 

appeared next to the girl’s own. They seemed to walk right by her side,

 

to see her safely home. But there’s no mystery in the presence

 

of this unseen Friend—For once God’s touched your heart,

 

you’ll never walk alone again.

 

May the miracle of this Christmas cause you to truly believe in the footprints by YOUR side on the most ordinary of days!

 

All the staff of Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic School wishes you and your family a joyous Christmas and Happy New Year!

                 Christmas Anticipation Prayer

Hail and blessed be the hour and moment In which the Son of God was born Of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires, [here mention your request] through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen.

Beginning on St. Andrew the Apostle's feast day, November 30, this very meditative and easy to memorized prayer is traditionally recited fifteen times a day until Christmas to help us be more aware and prepare for the spiritual coming of the Christ Child.

For Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in
battle, be our protection against the
wickedness and snares of the devil; may god
rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, o
Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of
God, thrust into hell satan and all evil spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin
of souls. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in
battle, that we may not perish in the fearful
judgement.

Saint Michael, first champion of the
kingship of Christ, pray for us.

God our Father, in a wonderful way you
guide the work of angels and human being.
May those who serve you constantly in
heaven keep our lives safe from all harm on
earth. Grant this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, pray for us.

Pledge for Peace

With the help of Jesus, I pledge for this day to have a peaceful heart and a peaceful mind. I will try to keep peace in my school, in my home and in my world.
