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

Silence, Please

Our pastor's homily focused on something very important (and yet often overlooked in our society) today: QUIET/SILENCE.

He explained that if we don't take time to listen, then we will never learn. If we do all the talking, how can we hear other people? If we're always plugged in, what are we missing?

Very good thoughts. Very timely questions/reflections.

Silence is good. We all need more of it in our lives to better be in tune with God, with each other, and with ourselves.

Can you imagine what a better world we would live in if we all started listening just a little bit more...?
