Easter Message from the Principal
Though it is a four day weekend for most people, the Easter long weekend never quite feels like a typically “fun” holiday for me. The sobriety and gravity of Holy Thursday and Good Friday liturgies always put me in a ponderous, not quite “holiday” mood. It is good for me to experience these liturgies as they help me contemplate and pray on the depth of God’s love for me.
Today our Grade Seven class hosted a living version of the Stations of the Cross. The reverence they showed while re-enacting Christ’s passion were an inspiration to me. Our children are more sensitive to the suffering and pain of Christ crucified than adults can sometimes be. It is very real, and sometimes even a little scary to them, as perhaps it should be. Seeing it re-enacted and experience the sights and sounds of the events leading to Jesus’ death should remind them of how much Jesus loves them. If you don not have a chance to join in the Good Friday liturgy tomorrow, consider viewing the Stations of the Cross here.
I wish you and your families many graces and blessings this Easter.
