R E S P E C T L I F E S U N D A Y When battered by life’s storms, or immersed in a dense fog of suffering and uncertainty, we may feel alone and unequipped to handle the circumstances. Yet with words that echo through thousands of years into the corners of our hearts, the Lord says to us, “Do not fear: I am with you” (Isaiah 41:10). He speaks these words not as one who merely observes our pain, but as one who experienced immense suffering. And the very wounds that bear witness to his suffering indicate the essence of our identity and worth: we are loved by God. Reflecting on the healed wounds of the Risen Christ, we see that even our most difficult trials can be the place where God manifests his victory. He makes all things beautiful. He makes all things new. He is always with us. Jesus promised this when he gave the disciples the same mission he gives to each of us: Go. Go be my hands and feet to a world enslaved by fear. Go to the woman who is unexpectedly pregnant and fears the future. Go to your friend who fears reprisal at work because he takes a stand for the protection of human life. Go to your aging parent in failing health who fears be- ing a burden. And go to others, too, for their support. We don’t need to have everything figured out. We can simply follow the guidance of Our Blessed Mother, the first disciple: “Do whatever he tells you” (John 2:5). Walk with each other. Do not be afraid to embrace God’s gift of life. Whatever storms or trials we face, we are not alone. He is with us. “Behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). NABRE © 2010 CCD. Used with permission.

S.P.A.R.C.C.L.S. The new SPARCCLS theme for 2017-2018 school year is, “Shine like the SON”. The theme was inspired by a passage in the gospel of Matthew: “The righteous will shine like the sun in their Father’s king- dom!” Matthew 13:43 In this scripture, we are told by Jesus that “The righteous will shine in their Father’s kingdom”. WE are called to be righteous people… WE are called to shine like Jesus… WE are called to share our light with others… Every day let us try our best to SHINE during our day-to-day tasks and live out our SPARCCLS values. During our morning assemblies we will give SPARCCL stars to others who we see “SPARCCLing”. It is exciting to see the SPARCCLS stars go up on our office bulletin board for all to see. They serve as a reminder that everyone here in our school is sharing their SPARCCLS values.
