Marcellin College, Bulleen Prayer

Marcellin College, Bulleen Prayer

Teach Me, O Lord to aim high

and not be content with mediocrity;

to set my sights on noble goals;

to have a brave heart, a clear vision;

to prize the things that are worthwhile; 

to always have the courage 

to choose what is right

to despise what is petty,

to shun all selfishness,

to have a heart that is strong and brave;

pure and happy,

docile yet courageous,

so that under your guidance and 

with your grace

I may always and in all things

have as my motto - Virtute Ad Altissima

Striving for the highest with virtue and courage


The Marcellin College Prayer was adapted from a prayer written by Br Michael Naughtin FMS.  Br Michael died in 2010 after a life devoted to young people in Marist Schools. He wrote this prayer for the boys he served in Marist Schools.
