You, Great Teacher, guide us all as students of life lived in faith;
Since before written word, you have walked with us in our struggles and in our celebrations.
It was you bursting old wine skins with new wine on the mount.
It was you feeding the multitudes with your words on the plain.
It is you who are the light that is passed from generation to generation in the journey of life.
It is you walking with these graduates as we bless them in your name.
Continue to walk (today) with these graduates as we bless them in your name.
Lifting hands over graduates, continue praying…
May God's bright flame from the lamp of knowledge guide you.
May God's warm glow off the pages of this book of wisdom comfort you.
May the cool baptismal waters of God continue to refresh you in your endings and new beginnings.
May your Soul always be fed at Christ’s table,
may your Heart always be open in the presence of the Holy Spirit,
and may your Mind be transformed in the mighty presence of the Great "I Am."
God is with you. God is with us. Go with God. Amen.
