Mass 09.20.19 – Going on a Treasure Hunt

Father Thomas took our students on a treasure hunt today. Here are a few things they talked about in mass to help continue the conversation at home:
 
– A treasure is something of value (or valued) that we keep carefully.
– What are things that we treasure? Our family. Our friends.  Our priests. Our parents. Our children.
– These are treasured items because we love them, yes, but they hold great value in what they teach/give back to us.
– People we care about teach us how to love each other, love God, love our Church, how to pray, and how to live faithfully.
– While these people we treasure are a great gift from God, we need to remember that we all seek the ultimate treasure – eternal life.
– Our faith is the roadmap to living a treasured life in Heaven.

Mass 09.13.19 – How Do We See Others?

How do we see others? Father Mike spent time this morning talking to our students about perceptions of ourselves, others, and God. He issued a challenge at the end of his talk that we encourage EVERYONE to try today.
 
Here are some talking points to help make today’s mass meaningful in your home: – Do we see people and the good they do? – Do we see the mistakes they make? – God sees us through loving eyes… ALWAYS! – Loving eyes give grace for good days and bad days. – Loving eyes forgive when we have really bad days. – Loving eyes allow for redemption and growth.
 
CHALLENGE: Can you say something nice to a friend, a family member, teacher, … anyone… and see them as God see them.
