During these unsettling and unprecedented times, let us be grateful
for our St. John's Community. Let us be thankful that we chose to
educate our children in a Catholic School where our faith is integrated
into every part of our day. Fear will take over, yet Jesus tells us in His
Word, "Be not afraid." He wanted that statement to sink into us so much
that He said it 365 times in the Bible. That is a message for us to
remember every day of our lives. For us to truly do that, we need to try
and stay in the present. Do not look behind you to yesterday. Peek with
MOMENTS of hope into tomorrow. But, above all, try to live in the
present. Make your "present" count for you and those around you.
Use this time to catch up on meaningful relationships, perhaps mend
the fragile ones and above all, be the best version of yourself. Do it for
yourself. Do it for your children. Do it for your family. Do it for your
friends. We are not alone. We are a family united in the Body of
Christ. When one member is elated with happiness, we feel joy. When
one member is engulfed in pain, we feel sorrow. Through all times, we
are not alone.
My prayer for you and our St. John's Community is simply this.
Be with us now, in this day, in this moment.
Cover us with Your blanket of protection.
Soothe and comfort our souls.
Permeate our entire being with an abundance of Grace.
Help us in our time of trouble to know, love and serve you.
And most of all my Lord, give us the strength to be a beacon
of light in the midst of the darkness.
We ask all of these petitions in your most Holy Name
and with our most grateful hearts.
Be well my precious families,
Mrs. Jill Parrino
