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

Ready for Retreat? I sure hope so...

Today was a long one at school...but I think we're just about finalized for Sunday's Confirmation Retreat. Schedules, ice breakers, reflection questions, supplies, and drinks/snacks...I sure hope I haven't forgotten anything.

I am so blessed with friends in the local area who have willingly and generously given of their time to help out by giving witness talks and/or leading small groups throughout the day. They are the best, and I cannot even begin to thank them enough.

My sincere hope is that the 8th grade Confirmation candidates see the strong Catholic faith being lived on a daily basis by these young adults (and not just their Religion teacher). I also hope that since one friend coming is in the seminary that they will see how young people still accept vocations to the priesthood.

If you have some extra prayers to send up this Sunday, please pray for the hearts of my students to be open to God's message and love on retreat. Please also pray for my retreat team, that God bless them abundantly for their generosity and friendship.

Thank you.
