We cannot reap where we do not sow.
Cooler weather, less daylight and the changing colors in nature remind us that autumn is here. Traditionally, this season is the time of harvest, the gathering of the fruits of labor.
Perhaps this week we can take some time to reflect upon the harvest we look to produce in our children. Certainly we hope that it will result in children who are spiritually, intellectually, and morally ripened. We hope our toil over the years will yield a productive young adult.
However, we must be aware that unless we invest the time and energy required, we are relying upon guesswork and luck to develop our children. Nowhere is this lesson more keenly demonstrated than in our faith life. When we take time to pray, celebrate Mass, and receive the Sacraments with our children, we teach by example. We guide them into becoming people like ourselves.
Let us use this harvest time as a reminder to continually sow the life of faith we hope our children will reap!
This week our school community is praying for Matthew Anzideo, uncle of the Scuderi family, Mrs. Walters, Cullen Keffer, the Coon family, Paige O’Hara, Chris Reynolds, and for all those in need.
