President’s Friday Messsage March 19 2021
Dear Assumption Catholic Schools,
Our Lenten journey continues but is approaching the end. I pray that each of you continue to reflect on your faith journey and find hope and comfort in knowing that we travel with Jesus and are assisted by the Holy Spirit in our efforts. One of my favorite poems is Footsteps and it is so true, we do not always see God or Jesus as They help us in our lives but in our darkest hours He carries us. Remember our life here on earth is but a journey to our ultimate home in Heaven for all of eternity.
Our virtue of the week is RESILIENCE – The strength to be able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
Lord, You were the most RESILIENT man ever. You encountered every possible difficulty … hunger, humiliation, traveling, insults … not to mention all You suffered in Your Passion and Death. May we learn how to be RESILIENT like You especially with and for our family members and teammates. Help us to develop the habit of always looking for ways to do good for others no matter how difficult the circumstances.
Today is all about positive and RESILIENT self-talk … telling ourselves we can do it, believing in ourselves and rejecting the negative or discouraging talk
We love You, Lord, and we praise You. May we honor You with our hearts, minds, souls in all we do. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this great school, team, group. That is a blessing which we must not take for granted. Help us to live the virtue of RESILIENCE this week by practicing positive self-talk at least once every day. In Your Name we pray. Amen

John 2: 13-17
Since the Passover of the Jews was near, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. He found in the temple area those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, as well as the money-changers seated there. He made a whip out of cords and drove them all out of the temple area, with the sheep and oxen, and spilled the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables, and to those who sold doves he said, “Take these out of here, and stop making my Father’s house a marketplace.” His disciples recalled the words of scripture, “Zeal for your house will consume me.”
In Christ’s Peace
