Saints Speak - 2/16/2023 - The Sign of True Love

Please take a few minutes to reflect on today’s quote from Pope Francis: 

 

“Service is the sign of true love. Those who love know how to serve others. We learn this especially in the family, where we become servants out of love for one another.”

 

As a school community, our Outreach group leads us in various service opportunities throughout the year. Most recently, for our MLK Day of Service, we packaged food at Feed My Starving Children and made cards for St. Elizabeth Seton’s card ministry. These acts of love help those most in need in our world. Here, Pope Francis is calling us to also be servants for those with whom we interact each day. How can we demonstrate love in our service to our family members, colleagues, and those we see on a daily basis? These small acts of service are true representations of our love for those around us.

 

Lent  

Next week we begin the season of Lent. Please join us for Mass on Ash Wednesday at 8:15am. This Mass will replace our regular Friday Mass next week. Please note that students should be in perfect uniform (no spirit wear) on Wednesday for Mass but may wear their spirit wear tops on Friday next week instead.

 

As we prepare our hearts for Lent, now is a good time to start thinking about what the season means and what you will focus on this Lent. The three key components of Lent for us as Christians are prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. You may choose to do something for each of these components, or you may focus especially on one area. It’s common for many of us to focus on fasting, as we ask one another what we “gave up” for Lent. We talk about giving up a favorite food, TV show, or pastime. Doing so is making a sacrifice, and it can help purify our lives. This year, as you think about your Lenten promise, I challenge you to be more intentional about how this commitment or sacrifice can also bring you closer to Christ. If you give up social media, can you use that time you would have been scrolling to pray or read scripture? If you are giving up eating fast food, can the time spent cooking at home be a way to grow closer as a family? Each week we’ll share more about what we’re doing for Lent in school as well as some suggestions for home.
