September 24th was an extraordinary day both in the United States and at Resurrection College Prep High School. It has been a historical day with Pope Francis addressing the Joint Meeting of Congress, and the Nation. Here at Resurrection the entire school participated in the extraordinary event by coming together in the gym and watching the Holy Father on two large screens. It was a moving event and a wonderful opportunity for all of us to feel connected closely as a Catholic/Christian Community and as American Citizens.
Viewing the Pope Francis' Address to Congress
After the Holy Father delivered his address three members of the faculty: Ms. Marianne Boe, Sr. Mary Ann Meyer, and Mr. Brad Mulick shared reflections on the historic and pastoral implications of the Pope's address. Their summaries and highlights were so inspiring that I want to share them on the blog. Their ability to concisely articulate the Pope's message and to connect it with the goals of Catholic education and content covered in classes was truly awesome!
