If there is one prayer that is familiar to Lasallians everywhere, Brothers, associates, teachers, students and former students, it is “Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.” This prayer, or rather this invitation, derives from Saint John Baptist de La Salle himself, who prescribed that it be invoked at certain times throughout the school day. It is significant that in the Founder’s time it was used in the school situation as a reminder, usually voiced by a student, to the teachers and students of the significance of what they were doing in the educational enterprise. As such, the formula does not appear in the exercises of piety the Founder composed for the Brothers in their community prayer. All the more reason why it can easily become the signature Lasallian prayer for the associates and partners of the Brothers, as well as for their present and former students.
