I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Immaculate Conception

What happens when you find out your students don't know what the feast your school is named for celebrates?

You panic!

Just kidding...

But you do keep trying (over and over and over) to correct that situation.

And, yes, some begin to slowly realize that the Immaculate Conception is about Mary being conceived by Anne and Joachim rather than Jesus being conceived by Mary (the Annunciation).

And, yes, some still don't know the difference...but we will keep trying.

One day, I have faith, it will register. One day, it will all click.

Mary, the Immaculate Conception, Pray for us!
