Exam Prayer: Lord, pour out your Spirit of Wisdom on these students: help them to remain calm, to attend carefully to the questions asked, to think clearly, to remember accurately, and to express themselves well. Grant that they may reflect the best of the work they have done and the best of the teaching they have received. Accept their best efforts in these examinations and in the great test of life on earth. May your love be upon them O Lord, as they place all their trust in you.

 

( St Teresa of Avila) Christ has no body but yours / no hands, no feet on earth but yours / yours are the eyes to which he looks / with compassion on this world / yours are the feet with which he walks to do good / yours are the hands which he blesses all the world / Christ has no body on earth now on earth but yours.
