Default [NPC] Help needed: customized Rite

As part of a co-authored project on Christopher, I'm designing a major Wordbound NPC as an example of a servitor who rarely leaves Heaven. She's actually a Seraph of Destiny IST Children, with the Word of Reborn Saints; her main duties are keeping records of the Sainted souls who choose to return through mundane birth, and teaching those souls the truth about their origins (when the right time comes, of course). Most of her game details are pretty clear in my mind, though I'm stuck on one detail. Christopher has probably designed one custom Rite related to this angel's Word...but what should that Rite be? Any serious, constructive suggestion is welcome!

"Spend one hour inspiring children by reading them true stories of very virtuous people"?

A lot of your suggestions sound usable; I'll run them by my co-author as soon as I get hold of him. Thanks!
