FROM THE DESK OF MS. BRESLER...                                 
Dear Parents,
     
     Wednesday we experienced our first Morning Prayer as a school community. It was also the first Morning Prayer that I had ever attended. We started by asking God to come to our aid, with haste. There were lovely psalms and songs, a reading from the Bible, an informative homily about Morning Prayer, and wonderful petitions. All of this was focused on asking for God's blessing and dedicating our day to God. For me, it was a calming time which really started my day in a place of security and the knowledge that whatever came my way that day, it would be tempered with the knowledge that God would be with me.
We will be doing Morning Prayer on the first Wednesday of each month. I would encourage everyone to give it a try, at least once. While it is different from the Mass, it is a public prayer of the Church, and that is a good thing.
 
YEARLY THEME:  
     Same Sacred Mission, Bold, New Look: Living, Teaching, Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
     Next Wednesday, September 11 after Mass, our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades will be presenting how we can "Live" the Gospel. Please join us if you can. I look forward to what they will share with us.
When I think of Living the Gospel, the following three things come to mind.
 
Prayer - Being a Christian is hard work and you must give yourself the tools you need to succeed! When faced with a tough situation, even Jesus went to God in prayer. Why do we think we can do it alone? As Christians we should spend time in prayer every day. It could be 5, 10, 15, or even 20 minutes of quiet time with God. It could also be a hurried cry of "Help me get through this day" as you are heading out the door. Take time to talk with God.
Mass - Attending Mass each week, and worshiping God with fellow believers, and receiving the Body and Blood of Christ is the fuel we need to keep doing our job as Christians. Make the effort to attend and participate in Mass - sing along, say the responses, listen to the readings and the homily - it will open our heart to God. We get out of the Mass what we put into the Mass.
Corporal Works of Mercy - As outlined in Chapter 25 in the Gospel of Matthew, the Corporal Works of Mercy are those that tend to the bodily needs of others. The works include: Feed the hungry, Give water to the thirsty, Clothe the naked, Shelter the homeless, Visit the sick, Visit the imprisoned, and Bury the dead (which comes to us from the Book of Tobit).
