"Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor for all who invoke thee, special patron in time of need; to thee I have recourse from the depth of my heart, and humbly beg thee, to whom God hath given such great power, to come to my assistance; help me now in my urgent need and grant my earnest petition. I will never forget thy graces and the favors thou dost obtain for me and I will do my utmost to spread devotion to thee. Amen."

I really believe that in reality this is the task of every teacher , figuratively speaking , to raise up a child high , so that flying bravely they can see far ahead , and may they little hearts be filled by relieved, ringing laughter, joy and hope !!
With love,

“My Lord, my God ! My God and my all !” Saint Francis 
“He went out to the mountain to pray; and he spent the night in prayer to God. “
The masters of spiritual life distinguish four different types of prayers.
1.Prayer of repentance: Perhaps this is the form of prayer we should use most often ! The prayer of the prodigal son : "Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants!” 
2.Prayer of petition: We ask the Heavenly Father with a childlike trust to hurry to our aid with His caring love. Jesus Himself encourages us for this type of prayer : Knock and a door will be opened, ask and you shall be given !
3.Prayer of thanksgiving : Unfortunately out of the ten lepers healed only one returned to give thanks and praise for his healing !! It is sad that we use this prayer that fails our spirits with joy and light so seldom ! 
4.Prayer of praise ! A prayer of glorifying, adoring God is perhaps the most wonderful way to stand before God ! Here we are no longer occupied with our own problems, needs we are only admiring our Creator’s infinite goodness, love, mercy and wisdom, we are glorifying ,praising Him! This prayer nourishes the love in our hearts , because the adoration of God tears down the barriers between heaven and earth and unifies the adoring and the Adored in the fire of love !
Our Lord Jesus Christ wild before us on the way of prayer , by saying the “Our Father “ He not only teaches us but by His personal life shows us an example ! Let us dare to let go of everything and spend an hour or so , a night or so in adoration of our God !
With love ,

12 Now during those days he went out to the mountain to pray; and he spent the night in prayer to God. 13And when day came, he called his disciples and chose twelve of them, whom he also named apostles:14Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, and James, and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, 15and Matthew, and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus, and Simon, who was called the Zealot, 16and Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
17 He came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea, Jerusalem, and the coast of Tyre and Sidon. 18They had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. 19And all in the crowd were trying to touch him, for power came out from him and healed all of them.
Luke 6, 12-19

For as Jonah became a sign to the men of Nin'eveh, so will the Son of man be to this generation.
The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.
The men of Nin'eveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
Luke 11 , 29-32
