TRANSLATION OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM
Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people, Dispenser of India’s destiny, The name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Gujarat and Maratha of Dravid, Orissa and Bengal. It echoes in the hills of Vindhyas and Himalayas, mingles in the music of Yamuna and Ganges and is chanted by the waves of Indian Ocean. They prey for thy blessing and sing the praise. The saving of all people waits thy hand, Thou dispenser of India’s destiny. Victory, Victory, Victory to thee.
[The English rendering of the National Anthem is by Rabindranath Tagore]

TEACHERS' PRAYER FOR CHILDREN
Jesus, lover of children, we bring before you, all the children all over the world, poor and rich, normal and abnormal able and disabled. Very specially we bring to you the children of our schools, to be blessed, protected and guided by you through us. Be with us so that we may understand them taking into account their background, their struggles, their desires to be loved and recognized. Give us all, hearts that are generous and discerning that we may not react to them from our own frustrations and anger but from your love and forgiveness.
Amen.
