Leaving Cert Results

Congratulations to all students who received their results last Wednesday; we wish you the best over these days of waiting and decision making.

Making Decisions Prayer

Lord, I turn to you for help,
that in your wisdom you might aid me in making the right decision.
I am unsure about what is best for me, and at times I hesitate to pray for guidance, not because I don’t believe, but because I know that if I am honest with myself and with you, I will be changed – and that change unsettles me. I am comfortable now, and sometimes I am afraid of what you might be calling me to do.
Shake me from my comfort. When I doubt my ability to choose what is right, guide me in my discernment and point me in the direction you want me to go. When I turn to you, I will always find the courage to choose faith, the strength to choose hope, the compassion to choose love. I am not made or unmade by the things which happen to me but my reaction to them.
