“The heavens declare the glory of God
And the firmament proclaims His handiwork”
April signifies the dawning of Spring! Over the past few days it almost seems like spring is hereJ During this month it is a good time to celebrate new life – physical and spiritual.
Spring invigorates us to get active. After the winter we yearn to be outside enjoying the sunshine. Often we neglect ourselves for other concerns – work, house, and children. Over the next few weeks perhaps you can carve out some time to enjoy spring. The results will be a refreshed you – better able to meet life’s challenges.
During Lent we took some time to quietly reflect on our busy lives. Perhaps we discovered where we needed to grow spiritually. Easter provided us with the opportunity to celebrate our spiritual rebirth. With the Lord we rise from sin to live in His glory. Our spiritual life needs to be re-awakened just as our physical life does. Think about the spiritual re-awakening you experienced over the past several weeks and how this experience will enrich your relationship with the Lord. Maybe the physical and spiritual time will go hand-in-hand!
This week our school community is praying for Matthew Anzideo, Mrs. Walters, Cullen Keffer, the Coon family, Alice Rodgers, Valerie Dati, Dr. Mendez, Monsignor Trinity, Richard Gatewood, Patrick Cataldo, Conall Harvey, Ted McGonigle, and for all those in need.
Congratulations to Mackenzie Ciotti, who received the sacrament of Reconciliation on Saturday at Presentation BVM. We are happy to have her as a more active member of the Catholic Church.
