We have the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:16
On Monday we celebrate Presidents’ Day. Legends about two prominent presidents, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, have developed over time emphasizing the virtue of honesty. We speak of “honest Abe” and tell the story about George Washington and the cherry tree.
The virtue of honesty results from the gift of knowledge. This gift of the Holy Spirit enables us to learn about the truths of our faith. Knowledge teaches us basic doctrines, which assist us in actions and decisions. Through this gift we are better able to see the truth, to know the truth, and to act on the truth. We become persons embracing honesty as a life style at home, at work, and in the community.
Yet, this virtue is not meant to be harsh or abrasive in relationships with others. Honesty is the virtue built on deep-rooted principles so that gentle words and actions guide ourselves and others to live in accord with Jesus, who is the Truth.
This week let us resolve that this knowledge will manifest itself in our honest relationships with all whom we meet each day as we build the Kingdom of God in our small part of the world.
This week our school community is praying for all of our school families, the parishioners of ABVM and St. Denis, Pope Francis, Mr. Joseph Clancy, Jayne Dahm, Melissa Speck, John Deenis, Helen Viggiano, Michelle Shonleber, Keira Oliver, Mrs. Ray’s dad, the McGonigle Family, the Murtaugh family, Anne Carney, Frank Baker, Delia DiBattista, Conall Harvey, Joe Doyle, Rita Grady (Mrs. Gallagher’s mom),Florence Adcock, Leslee Smith’s mom, who went to heaven, Grant Nye, grandfather of Juliana and Thomas, who went to heaven, Therese Trainer, who will receive the sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, February 25, and for all those in need.
