Principal Weekly Letter
Message from the Principal - September 22, 2021
Jesus seems to say to the apostles, 'It's not about you!' He points them to the good that is being done. Help me, Lord, not to think that those who agree with me are more favored in your sight. Help us, Lord, to realize that the Christian life is all about others.
Also, gathering and belonging are important human needs, but Jesus shows us how we can lead ourselves astray. The reign of God is advanced wherever good is done, where truth is spoken, when love wins out. Lord, help me not to be narrow-minded or judgmental, but to give thanks to you for all that is good. God Bless You.
