"You will see things more clearly, different, but good." These were the words that Father Ed White, Pastor at Saint Stephen the Martyr parish and my spiritual director, offered me the last time we met in early July.
Reflections from President Mike Prato
These reflections are intended to provide readers with insight on the Gospels relevant to our school events and activities and are spiritually up-lifting.
"We are placed in our different ranks and stations, not to get what we can out of them for ourselves, but to labor in them for Him."
I distinctly remember the first time my dad took me fishing when I was only about four years old.
In the fall of 1969, entering my sophomore year at JFK, I noticed a slightly older teacher wandering the halls. Thirty-nine was 'slightly old' to a 16-year old.
When I was young, 'give up' were the words my cousin and I used when we wrestled at my grandparent's house and one of us got the upper hand. Later, they were words directed to us by our parents when it was Lent. "What are you giving up for Lent?" (not so much a question, more of a suggestion)
