Being back in school ...


Except for the Franciscan quotations, I have been posting little of late. Being at a new school with a new curriculum means lots of reading and lesson planning, and I find myself with little time or mental energy. Sigh.

On a positive note, it's a wonderful school, with great students. I am enjoying it. The spirituality there is incredible.

Now, back to getting ready for the day!

Franciscan quotation


Prayer is the raising of the mind to God. We must always remember this. The actual words matter less. - Pope St. John XXIII

Franciscan quotation


Take care to have around you people, whether clerics or laymen, who are wise, upright, and loyal, and free from covetousness. Talk with them often, but shun and fly from association with the wicked. - King St. Louis

Franciscan quotation


Many apply themselves to prayers and offices, and practise much abstinence and bodily mortification, but because of a single word which seems to be hurtful to their bodies or because of something being taken from them, they are forthwith scandalized and troubled. These are not poor in spirit: for he who is truly poor in spirit, hates himself and loves those who strike him on the cheek. - St. Francis of Assisi

Franciscan quotation


There are many who if they commit sin or suffer wrong often blame their enemy or their neighbor. But this is not right, for each one has his enemy in his power,—to wit, the body by which he sins. Wherefore blessed is that servant who always holds captive the enemy thus given into his power and wisely guards himself from it, for so long as he acts thus no other enemy visible or invisible can do him harm. - St Francis of Assisi
