From the Desk of the Principal…June 8, 2022
At the end of this school year we give thanks to God:
For all of the teaching and learning that has taken place in our school, both in and out of the classroom.
For the talents and gifts that have been shared and the challenges that have been faced;
For the burdens that have been lifted and the hurts that have been healed;
For the respect and care that has been given.
For the faith that has lifted our hearts on the dark days;
And for the love that has kept us going. We give thanks for the community that we are, and we ask you Lord ~ Bless our students, teachers, and our staff members.
May your Spirit inspire them with confidence and calmness.
Bless our families and may our time together leave us with memories to cherish.
Pour out your love on us that we may return renewed and refreshed to continue our journey together.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord through the intercessions of St. Joseph, St. Julie, St. John Bosco and Our Lady of the Assumption.
Wednesday in the 10 in Ordinary Time
1 Kings 18:20-39. Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope – Psalm 15(16):1-2, 4-5, 8, 11. Matthew 5:17-19.
Elijah vanquishes the priests of Baal
‘Authenticity’ is the watchword of today’s marketer, advertiser and (shudder) ‘influencer’. If brands say they stand for something their actions need to match their words lest consumers be turned off and employees look to move elsewhere. It’s a trust situation and, as everyone knows, once lost trust can be difficult to regain. Today’s first reading is a comedy sketch about authenticity and trust. Who is the real God? Whose deeds match their words? The priests of Baal are flapping around calling on their God to light the fire and getting more exhausted, frustrated and ridiculous as nothing happens. Then Elijah, obviously enjoying his time in the spotlight, ups the ante and, in the most public manner possible, ensures the wood is sodden before calling on God to light the fire. Of course, God answers with deeds to match Elijah’s words. God was ‘on brand’, and there’s nothing more attractive and authentic than that.
