There was lots of reaction to the exam prayer that was on yesterday. I have today made a prayer card out of it using one of my photos. Feel free to pass it on to anyone or use it in a parish newsletter or whatever.

'The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.í ~Robert Hutchins

The Leaving and Junior Cert exams begin across Ireland today. For those doing the exams it is always an anxious time. It's also an anxious time for parents, teachers and everyone involved in school life. They are a bit like the dreaded penalty shoot out in sport. Everyone says itís cruel and yet no one has come up with a better solution. The same goes with exams. So much seems to depend on these exams and yet they are only a means to an end. There is always life after exams. Education is life long and many opportunities will unfold no matter what happens with the exams taking place over the next week or so. They say exams are not there to catch anyone out but to find out how much a student knows. So lets hope and pray that each exam will give every student an opportunity to show how much they know. Saint Joseph of Cupertino is the patron saint for those doing exams. So we might say a prayer to him on behalf of all those starting the exams today.
