Let us remember' is a prayer and reflection resource offered to Lasallian schools and works. It might be used for individual prayer and reflection or at the beginning of team/faculty meetings, staff briefings or whole staff meetings. There will be a different focus for each reflection and over time a library of prayers and reflections will be developed for use.
Today's theme is: "To Jesus through Mary"
As Catholic Christians, we honour and celebrate Mary, and during October, we are invited to focus on the ancient prayer of the Rosary. Most will be familiar with Rosary Beads, and during this month of October we are invited to learn and to re-learn this form of meditating on and contemplating with many of the most central events in the life of Jesus. In times past, though, this practice has been caught up in traditional piety and sentimentality. However, Lasallians owe it to the world to reimagine and reinterpret this for the modern age. Beads are used by people of many faiths as a way to accompany prayer. Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, and Orthodox Christians among others use beads through the fingers as a help to meditation, and rosary beads are no different.
