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

More student response favs

You can't make this stuff up. The mix between student profundity and responses that make you chuckle is incredible. Below are some of my favorite responses gathered from 7th grade student surveys about their understanding of the Mass:

In response to "What does the word 'Amen' mean?" -->
  • "You have finished praying"
  • "I think it means 'ok' - a combination of thank you and ok"

In response to "Why do we genuflect when we enter the pew at Church?"
  • "To show respect to God and to say hello"
  • "To enter ourselves and start the mass, I am taking a guess, by the way, sorry I forgot."
  • "We genuflect to show we are starting prayer and mass and we genuflectat the end to show mass is over."

I love my job.
