In effort to give of ourselves this
Lenten season, the children will be
participating in a random act of
kindness program that will run
throughout the rest of the school
year. Our Hero program institutes
the idea of being a Hero to one
another and that no matter how small
the act is it can be contagious
enough to start a wave of LOVE.
The children will be given a Hero
card when they are caught in a
random act of kindness and are to
pay it forward when they see
something good happening. With
this new effort starting our Lenten
season, we pray to do these acts
with love and remember the greatest
love that was given to us though the
sacrifice of His life, Jesus Christ
our Lord and Savior.
reminds us that we are all sinners, and we all
have fault before God. The ashes remind us that
we are all unworthy of God, because of sin which
had corrupted us from the time when we first
fall into sin, in our ancestors. Ash Wednesday
also reminds us of our own mortality, that
we are all mortals and we are all weak.
We are all
created from dust, and so from dust we came and
to dust we shall return. Our physical bodies
will crumble like dust and yet our spirits, the
Spirit of God, shall remain. The season of Lent
is aimed at bringing to our realization that we
are sinners and mortals, and our lives
depend on God and on His love and kindness. And
He has indeed shown us great mercy.
Our Lord told
us that what He wants from us is a heart full of
regret and repentance. This heart of ours should
not be filled with pride and reluctance, but
instead with the eagerness of welcoming the Lord
into our own lives. The Lenten season serves to
remind us of this reality, and that God loves us
and He wants to be reunited with us in love.
