THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK FROM ST. AUGUSTINE SPIRITUALITY CENTER

January  25-31, 2015

 

“Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service” is the theme for Catholic Schools Week.  It complements the Gospel thoughts of Mark 1: 14-20 for this week.  During his public ministry Jesus is forming communities of faith.  “This is the time of fulfillment.  The Kingdom of God is at hand.  Repent and believe in the gospel.”  The time is NOW for us.  The Kingdom is present in the manifestation of our strong faith, our knowledge of the Gospel and our sharing of this Good News through word and action.

This week has some important saints related to some of our religious communities in the area. St. Angela Merici is the foundress of the Ursuline Sisters (of course, St. Augustine School claims her, too, because the Ursulines taught at and once owned the building – Ursuline Academy) St. John Bosco founded the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, Salesian Sisters. 

Saint Timothy was like a son to St. Paul and traveled with him on many of his journeys.  He helped establish many of the early churches.  St. Titus was a strong disciple of St. Paul and was a beloved and gentle bishop toward those to whom he ministered in Crete.

St. Thomas Aquinas,OP, Doctor of the Church, is considered one of the Church’s greatest theologian and

philosopher. He is the patron of schools and educators.

As we complete this month of January, may we strengthen our faith, hope and charity,
