THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. (Ps 62:7)


SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

John 2:1-11

The story is a story of abundance, the abundance of the blessings God gives us.  How have you been aware of the abundance of God’s blessings?  Let the memories lead you to prayer of thanks and praise for the times in your life when that joy and fulfilment have been real to you. 

The hour of Jesus had not yet come when the glory of God would be fully revealed, yet even so something of the glory of God was revealed in the sign that took place.  For us also the revelation of the full glory of God lies in the future, but we do get glimpses along the way. Recall some of the signs that have revealed to you something of the glory of God, e.g., nature, art, friendship, etc.

Mary/Jesus. It is interesting to note that despite the apparent rebuff, Mary is the first person in the narrative to show (at the level of the action of the story) that the correct response to the presence of Jesus is to trust in him.  When have you trusted in the word of Jesus like that?  What relationships do you have trust like that?  Do you recall times when your trust was rewarded even when you had been initially disappointed?

CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK  23-30 JANUARY 2022

“LIVING LIFE TO THE FULL” 

As we adapt to the many challenges and changes that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused, we are given the opportunity to reflect on the things that give our lives meaning. For some, it is family, friends, community sports or hobbies. For Catholics, it is God’s love and wish for us to know and love him that gives life ultimate meaning. Jesus Christ is the revelation of this love, realised through his life, death and resurrection. In response to this, we reflect upon how Catholic schools are communities where we live life to the full.

Every Catholic school fosters the holistic development of its students, promotes their wellbeing and encourages them to learn and nurture their talent and skills. Each child has the potential to change the world for the better, making it a kinder, more inclusive and more welcoming place. This week, we celebrate the gifts and talents we have in following Jesus’ teaching. This year, we celebrate how we are called to be communities of faith and resilience, through our thoughts, words and actions. In doing so, we follow the words of Jesus in John’s Gospel:

‘I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full.’
