LIVING THE WORD THROUGH PRAYER - May 26, 2014 We close down the year with special thanks to all those who have worked so tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of our children. This would include, priests, administrators, teachers, office staff, parish staff, parents and grandparents. It truly has been a community effort. We especially thank those teachers who will be leaving the school and following God's next plan for them. Please take time this week to wish them well. They are: Patricia Christie Beverly Spivey Allison Spedale Fox Debbie Cremeans Carol Marin Stephanie Marshall Pray this week for these these teachers and for a safe and restful summer.
Sorry for the late posting of this week's LIVING THE WORD THROUGH PRAYER, but it is never too late for a reminder to be kind to one another! LIVING THE WORD THROUGH PRAYER - May 19, 2014 The following is the Living the Word for the week from Principal of the Day, Lane Harrison. Mr. Harrison would like everyone to know that although the school year is almost over, he would like everyone to be a Good Samaritan, behave, and be kind to others. Students can listen to their teachers and help fellow students when they drop their books. If someone is being bullied, you can tell a teacher or you can tell the person to stop. This week, we want to pray to God to help us finish the school year and help us be kind to one another.
LIVING THE WORD THROUGH PRAYER - May 12, 2014 I hope all the moms had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday. In looking at the Living the Word for this time last year, I talked about the importance of closing out the year on a high note. With only 15 days to go, it is important that we not only finish strong but begin reflecting on all that we have experienced and learned this year. In teaching a lesson, it is important that a student understands the "why" of the lesson. What is the "takeaway" from the lesson? Why did the student need to know that information? What use is it to them for the future? What's the real life application? Talk to your children about their takeaway from this year. What did they learn? What was their experience in their particular grade level? How did they grow closer to Christ this year? Say a prayer of thanks this week for all the people who played a role in your child's education this year, including yourself! We thank you for the sacrifices you make for your child's Catholic education.
LIVING THE WORD THROUGH PRAYER - May 5, 2014 With a few weeks of school left, many families may be looking forward to summer trips. Perhaps there's still some planning to do, itineraries that need to be put together, flight arrangements, travel routes, etc. Travel brings an air of excitement and anticipation for things to come. You have expectations of course, but you never know all the things you will encounter. In just a short trip to Emmaus, two disciples had an encounter that would change their lives forever. As they walked along talking about the events in Jerusalem, a stranger happened upon them. As the day went on, they came to realize that they were in the presence of Christ. They truly had a story to tell when they got back to Jerusalem. The story of the Road to Emmaus parallels what happens at Mass. In each "trip" to Mass, we can anticipate an encounter with Christ. At Mass, scripture is interpreted for us by the priest, we break bread as we celebrate the Eucharist, Christ is revealed, our hearts burn, and if we truly are aware of what just happened, we race to tell others about our experience. Going to Mass brings a deeper relationship with Christ and we should race to evangelize by sharing our experience. Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread. Luke 24:35 How does your encounter with Christ change you? Who can you tell? What would you tell them? Share with your children how Christ has changed your life. Ask them what influence He has on theirs. Many of our children are too young to know true conversion but each conversation that takes place brings them closer to it. Help them to see what the disciples saw that day and what we see every time we go to Mass. Pray this week for the conviction to share our faith. Pray that your encounter with Christ can be shared with others in a way that brings them closer to Him.
LIVING THE WORD THROUGH PRAYER - April 28, 2014 Special thanks to all those who attended the Auction this past weekend. It was a wonderful event. Thank you for your continued support of the school. We will enter the month of May this week which is the month of our Blessed Mother Mary. Mary said yes to God and thus gave us our Savior. She also gave us some powerful advice in John 2:5, "do whatever He tells you." These are the last words of Mary in scripture and they serve as a reminder to open our hearts and minds to the will of God. We ask Mary for her intercession for all of our prayers this month and remember the importance of all our mothers. As a school, we will say a decade of the Rosary each morning on our announcements. Consider praying the Rosary at home or saying a special prayer to the Blessed Mother each day this month.
LIVING THE WORD THROUGH PRAYER - April 21, 2014 From the USCCB: The Easter Vigil is the "Mother of All Vigils." Easter Sunday, then, is the greatest of all Sundays, and Easter Time is the most important of all liturgical times. Easter is the celebration of the Lord's resurrection from the dead, culminating in his Ascension to the Father and sending of the Holy Spirit upon the Church. There are 50 days of Easter from the first Sunday to Pentecost. It is characterized, above all, by the joy of glorified life and the victory over death, expressed most fully in the great resounding cry of the Christian: Alleluia! All faith flows from faith in the resurrection: "If Christ has not been raised, then empty is our preaching; empty, too, is your faith." (1 Cor 15:14) The Octave of Easter comprises the eight days which stretch from the first to the second Sunday. It is a way of prolonging the joy of the initial day. In a sense, every day of the Octave is like a little Sunday. The word "Easter" comes from Old English, meaning simply the "East." The sun which rises in the East, bringing light, warmth and hope, is a symbol for the Christian of the rising Christ, who is the true Light of the world. The Paschal Candle is a central symbol of this divine light, which is Christ. It is kept near the ambo throughout Easter Time, and lit for all liturgical celebrations. Liturgical Notes for Easter From Universal Norms on the Liturgical Year and the Calendar: 22. The fifty days from the Sunday of the Resurrection to Pentecost Sunday are celebrated in joy and exultation as one feast day, indeed as one "great Sunday." These are the days above all others in which the Alleluia is sung. 23. The Sundays of this time of year are considered to be Sundays of Easter and are called, after Easter Sunday itself, the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Sundays of Easter. This sacred period of fifty days concludes with Pentecost Sunday. 24. The first eight days of Easter Time constitute the Octave of Easter and are celebrated as Solemnities of the Lord. 25. On the fortieth day after Easter the Ascension of the Lord is celebrated, except where, not being observed as a Holyday of Obligation, it has been assigned to the Seventh Sunday of Easter (cf. no. 7). 26. The weekdays from the Ascension up to and including the Saturday before Pentecost prepare for the coming of the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete. The liturgical color for Easter is white. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (no. 346) also states: "On more solemn days, festive, that is, more precious, sacred vestments may be used even if not of the color of the day. The colors gold or silver may be worn on more solemn occasions in the Dioceses of the United States of America." Especially during Easter Time, instead of the customary Penitential Act, the blessing and sprinkling of water may take place as a reminder of Baptism. There are six metropolitan sees and their suffragan Dioceses which maintain the Solemnity of the Ascension on Thursday: Boston, Hartford, Newark, New York, Omaha, and Philadelphia. Every other region of the United States has opted to transfer the Solemnity to the following Sunday (the Seventh Sunday of Easter).
LIVING THE WORD THROUGH PRAYER - April 14, 2014 What a great job our 8th graders did yesterday telling the story of Christ's Passion at the 10:30AM and 12:30PM Masses! They truly put the Gospel in action. Great job 8th grade! This week is Holy Week. We follow Christ's triumphant ride into Jerusalem, His Passion, death and resurrection. How do we honor Christ this week for the sacrifice He made for us? Who can serve as examples of the importance of this week? Perhaps one of the most special events of the week is the Easter Vigil Mass. So many Christians are fulfilling God's call to them to continue their faith journey in full communion with the Catholic Church. The RCIA candidates and catechumens remind us of the importance of our faith and how enthusiastically overjoyed we should be to receive the Eucharist, as they will for the first time this week. It truly is a special night. Think about attending the Easter Vigil Mass this week. Pray for those who will become Catholic. Pray that they will always be enthusiastic about the Eucharist. Pray that they will evangelize the faith and live out Christ's mission on Earth.
