There is an appointed time for everything, and a season for every affair under the heavens.
The change of seasons reminds us that all life moves in a cycle. Life has a beginning (spring), growth (summer), maturity (autumn), and death (winter). This particular season of autumn causes us to reflect on the maturity we have attained. Each of us is the head of a family, a provider for the needs of our children, and our child’s best educator. Hopefully, in the autumn of our lives we experience a degree of satisfaction with our roles.
We should also be in the autumn of our spiritual lives. We have been baptized and grown in our relationship with the Lord. Now we experience contentment in a mature faith relationship. No longer do we pray, celebrate Mass together, and set good examples because we are afraid or instructed to do so. As mature Catholics we choose to develop our relationship with the Lord in these ways. We freely make and live this choice.
Our children who are in the summer of their faith lives see us in the autumn of our faith lives. They hope to be like us someday. Would you be satisfied if your child had the same relationship with the Lord, which you have?
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, Ann Clark, Jayne Dahm, Melissa Speck, John Deenis, Helen Viggiano, Max Rowland, grandfather of Shane Rowland, who went to heaven, Michelle Shonleber, Janice Penna, and for all those in need.
Thank you to our families, friends and parishioners who supported the Fall Classic. The proceeds support Catholic Education at Cardinal John Foley School.
