As our Lenten journey approaches its end with the beginning of Holy Week, I want to say "thank you" to all the students, staff, and parents for making this such a prayer filled, holy season. From the penny drive, the food drive, Stations of the Cross on Fridays, the confessions before Mass, volunteering at the soup kitchens, taking part int he 40 Days for Life Campaign, adoration in the chapel, holy hours at the parish, it is humbling to see how much our community puts their faith into action. Mother Teresa once said,
"How did Jesus love us? He died on the cross; He made himself the Bread of Life to satisfy our hunger for His love and then He mad himself the hungry one so that we, you and I, can satisfy His hunger for our love. We must thank the poor for allowing us to love Jesus in them..."
My prayer this week is that all of us continue to feed the physically poor, the financially poor, and all those poor in spirit through our loving Jesus in them.
May your and your families have a blessed Holy Week and Easter.
