Holy Lord, Saint Joseph Calasanz highly esteemed those who gave spiritual instruction to children. He believed that the highest calling is to help young ones attain eternal life. I ask him to pray for catechists and parents as they direct their ministry to the well-being of the souls of children and teens. Teach us to pass down our faith, dear God, and help us to shape their behavior by fostering in them a devotion to You and the Christian life. Inspire these children to influence the world of the new millennium when they grow up, spreading Your kingdom wherever they go and bringing renewed life to Your Church. Saint Joseph, pray for us. Amen.
