An Illuminated Prayer for the Beginning of the School Year

If your county's children haven't yet reported to school, they will soon.  They will learn to stand in neat lines:

They will have reading to do.  Will they have stacks of books to read--or is all reading done on electronic devices now?

They might have new art forms to learn:

Perhaps there will be time to play outside:

But the desk will rule the schedule:

May teachers remember the precious lives they hold in their hands:

May students be able to make sense of it all and to see the illumination lying underneath:

May baskets of angels protect us all:
