Blessing of Integrity
Parents of faith, bless you and thank you for your magnificent effort to raise noble, caring, whole children. Know that we, all of us, benefit from your undertaking, and share this task with you, for you are creating tomorrow’s society in the hearts and minds of today’s youth. May your stores of moral courage, forgiveness, compassion, creativity, and humor be rich and sustaining. And should they run short, may you remember that there is a community of integrity surrounding you, offering you its support and nourishment. May we all open and let that nourishment in. And, in return, may we pass it on to each other.
