School years are slowly beginning to wind down, and stress/pressure is continuing to grow at an exponential rate.  Administrative (UGH!) and academic deadlines are rushing towards us or even passing us by, and then of course, the dreaded exams and the cram session are but weeks away.  Please keep all students in your prayers, whether they are beginning a new chapter in their academic career, continuing on with one, or writing the finishing pages to it.

Lord have mercy!

Lord have mercy on your servants.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord have mercy.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

All are tempted, but it is the courageous person who clings to God during the storm. For the Ego is a prison, but Christ is the Liberator

Lord, have mercy!

Although I'm not a student yet I wish I'll have been one in three months. In May I'm taking post-High School exams and they results will decide about when will I be studying.
