Prayers of Thanks and Healing Hugs

                                    For the Resurrection Bandit Bowling Team and Coaches

As a sign of our solidarity with our Resurrection Bandit Bowling team, & in gratitude for their safe return to us, we came together today to pray as a school family.  It was our way of  offering prayers of thanks to God and hugs of healing to our bowling team and coaches. 
The bus accident they experienced on Tuesday was a deep concern for all of us and reinforced our belief about how precious each member of our school community is.  What happens to one, two, or twelve touches all of our hearts and lives. 
Let us continue to keep the bowling team and their coaches in our prayer!


Here are some pictures from our prayer service!

Father Dan is always there for us!

The Bandit says, "I can see your potential."

On Saturday, January 14th, our Bandit Mascot met the 8th graders who were leaving after a long day of entrance exams.  Being a true "Res Girl" our Bandit shared words of wisdom: 

"I may not be able to see out of this mask,
but I can see your potential."
Thank you Maribel Pagan '18 for the words of wisdom!
Yes, those are words of wisdom which we can all
remember throughout this semester and throughout life!
When we face challenges, let's all remember
that we have
 "Potential" and its shinning through!

Lessons from Christmas Flower Legends

While legends may not be historical in nature, they communicate truths that are deeper, more life changing, more sustainable, and more capable of capturing our hearts and inspiring our dreams.

The legends of the Christmas flowers teach us the most important two truths of life:  first that God is in love with us and that He came to earth to dwell among us, and secondly, God desires only one gift from us, the simple gift of our heart which in God's "Parent" eyes is the most beautiful of gifts.

Blessings at this Holy Season and may your garden spring anew!

Merry Christmas

May Jesus find a warm and loving haven in our hearts this Christmas!  

In the presence of the infancy of Jesus we are restored to
the image of God.  Now, most wonderfully, we search our
own hearts and learn of God's care for us.

The father and mother within us is but a faint image of the
Father and Mother in God.  He is the Father and Mother whose
heart never sleeps.  He is the One who has numbered the hairs on
 our heads...He is our food and our drink, our shade in the heat, our
 comfort in sorrow, our healing when we are wounded, our light in darkness.

The Christ-life in us, the infant Christ in our
soul, is the only begotten Son in the hands of God.
