JESUS CHRISTMessage and Person
  • Jesus answered them and said, "My teaching is not
    my own but is from the one who sent me.
  • Whoever chooses to do his will shall know whether
    my teaching is from God or whether I speak on my
    own.
  • Whoever speaks on his own seeks his own glory,
    but whoever seeks the glory of the one who sent
    him is truthful, and there is no wrong in him

Religious Dimension of Education in a Catholic
School
  • From the first moment that a student sets foot in
    a Catholic school, (s)he ought to have the
    impression of entering a new environment, one
    illumined by the light of faith, and having its
    own unique characteristics. (25)

9
First Reading, Isaiah 60 1-6
  • See, darkness covers the earth, and thick clouds
    cover the peoples But upon you the LORD shines,
    and over you appears his glory.
  • Nations shall walk by your light, and kings by
    your shining radiance.

10
Belief in the Resurrection
  • If the Witch knew the true meaning of sacrifice,
    she might have interpreted the deep magic
    differently. That when a willing victim who has
    committed no treachery, is killed in a traitor's
    stead, the stone table will crack, and even death
    itself would turn backwards.

JESUS PRIORITIES8 Essential Habits
  • Christopher Maricle

32
Meeting with Catholic EducatorsAddress of His
Holiness Benedict XVICatholic University of
America, April 17, 2008
  • Clearly, then, Catholic identity is not
    dependent upon statistics. Neither can it be
    equated simply with the orthodoxy of course
    content. It demands and inspires much more
    namely, that each and every aspect of your
    learning communities reverberates within the
    ecclesial life of faith. Only in faith can truth
    become incarnate and reason truly human, capable
    of directing the will along the path of freedom.

33
HEAL
  • Stay deeply connected to compassion
  • Compassion not only benefits others but also
    frees us.
  • Say yes to strangers
  • Do what is in your power to do
  • Each of us has the power to be a source of
    healing.
  • See with the heart
  • It is only with the heart that one can see
    rightly what is essential is invisible to the
    eye.

  • The Little Prince, St. Exupery

34
LOVE
  • Show mercy no matter what
  • Extend forgiveness without limit
  • How often should I forgive? Jesus said to him,
    Not seven times, but I tell you, seventy-seven
    times.
  • Whenever you stand praying, forgive.
  • If there is repentance,,you must forgive him.
  • Love others as God loves

35
Forgiveness
  • When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a
    new bicycle.
  • Then I realized that the Lord doesnt work
    that way
  • so I stole on and asked Him to forgive

  • Emo Phillips

36
PRAY
  • Pray alone
  • Could I speak to you alone for a moment?
  • Pray persistently
  • Pray with others
  • Pray simply
  • Adoration Wow
  • Contrition Oops
  • Thanksgiving Thanks

  • No.
  • Is that a reason to let sick people die?

    state of grace

47
  • To all of you I say bear witness to hope.
    Nourish your witness with prayer. Account for the
    hope that characterizes your lives (cf. 1 Pet
    315) by living the truth which you propose to
    your students. Help them to know and love the One
    you have encountered, whose truth and goodness
    you have experienced with joy.

48
Those who have hope must live different lives! By
your prayers, By the witness of your faith, By
the fruitfulness of your charity, May you point
the way towards that vast horizon of hope which
God is even now opening up to his Church, and
indeed to all humanity the vision of a world
reconciled and renewed in Christ Jesus, our
Savior.
