Back to School…Already?

I recently spoke with a high school student. In the group of adults who talked to her, someone said (as adults often do), “starting school soon?” She bristled – protesting that she does not like school. At least you adults get paid for what you do, she said.

School will start whether we like it or not. We have to salute all the dedicated teachers and administrators, as well as the school staffs. We honor our catechists of all grades, who teach us that Jesus is truly the first Teacher of our children. Last but not least, we thank the parents who love and support their children.
Thank a teacher, or a catechist, thank your parents. We cannot do it without them.

Renewed in the Spirit,
