On Wednesday, Father Kevin Moebius blessed all the classrooms, students, and teachers of St. Peter’s School.
“If you are willing to listen you will learn” — Sirach 6:32-37
If you wish, you can be taught;
if you apply yourself, you will be shrewd.
If you are willing to listen, you will learn;
if you give heed, you will be wise.
Frequent the company of the elders;
whoever is wise, stay close to him.
Be eager to hear every godly discourse;
let no wise saying escape you.
The blessing continued asking for the Holy Spirit to descend upon the students and teachers and be filled with wisdom and blessings.
After each classroom was blessed, the holy water fonts at the school entrances were filled. Blessing oneself with holy water reminds us of our Baptism and the symbol of our new birth by the Holy Spirit.
