For the past few years, Bishop has asked the Sisters to keep an eye out for a building for the school and potentially a convent and rectory. So, I would like to begin a petition to St. Therese for these intentions. The Novena Prayer to St. Therese after each Low Mass will be for these intentions

Weekly Reflection

Imitation of Christ, Book 3

Chapter 36 Against the Vain Judgments of Humans: “CHRIST: My child, firmly cling to the Lord and do not fear the judgments of humans, when your conscience assures you that you seek to be devout and innocent. Consider it a good thing and rejoice when you suffer that way. It will not be burdensome to you if you are humble of heart, nor if you trust more in God than in yourself. A lot of people utter many things; therefore attach little importance to what they say. Neither is it possible to satisfy everybody. St. Paul tried to please everyone in the Lord and became all things to all. Nevertheless, he paid little attention to being judged by humans.

2. He worked for the formation and salvation of others, as much as he could and found possible. In spite of all that, he was unable to prevent others from sometimes judging or despising him. Therefore, he committed everything to God, Who is all-knowing, and put on the armor of patience and humility against the onslaughts of evil tongues, or against those who thought or expressed vain or bad things about him. Sometimes, however, he answered his accusers, when his silence might scandalize the weak.

3. Why be afraid of mortals? A human being is here today and gone tomorrow. Keep up a wholesome fear of God and you will not find it necessary to be afraid of humans. What can others really do against you by words and insults? Those who thus attack you hurt themselves more than you, and wherever they may be, they will not escape God’s judgment. Endeavor to walk always in God’s presence and refrain from arguments. And if at times you have been overcome and undeservedly suffer confusion, do not be downcast and do not lessen your future reward by yielding to impatience. But rather look up to Me in heaven, for I am able to deliver you from all trouble and injury, and to repay all persons according to their works.”
