Prayer for Students

Lord our God, in your wisdom and love you surround
us with the mysteries of the universe.
Send your Spirit upon these students and fill them
with your wisdom and blessings.
Grant that they may devote themselves to their studies
and draw ever closer to you, the source of all knowledge.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

R/. Amen.
"Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace in the world."
–St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta

This Week, Snapchat released a new update that allows users to access another person's exact physical location on the "Snap Map". It also allows the other person to see how far away they are and will even provide driving and walking directions. 

Kids often accept Snapchat friends they have not actually met. Online predators exploit this and use Snapchat to contact their victims due to the disappearing messages and photos. Unfortunately, this new update could further enable stalkers, thieves, and child predators on Snapchat.  

  • How to keep your kids safe...Have kids put their Snapchat into "Ghost Mode" to disable location sharing
  • Turn off precise location in phone settings
  • Create a Family Technology Agreement
  • No tech in kids' rooms at night
  • Wait to give kids access to smartphones and social media
