Reflection…

The real problem of the Christian life comes where people do not usually look for it. It comes the very moment we wake up each morning. All our wishes and hopes for the day rush at us like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day. Standing back from all our natural fussing and fretting; coming in out of the wind.

OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY SCHOOL NEWS

This Term, Year 4M have explored the presence of the risen Jesus both in our parish and in the Word of God. We explored the feelings of fear, doubt, faith and joy and wrote diary entries on how the disciples responded to the Resurrection and the appearance of Jesus. We discussed how we are His disciples today and work to spread the Good News. We learnt that we can experience and respond to the presence of Jesus through the Word of God. We explored the structure of the Liturgy of the Word and reviewed the responses within the Liturgy and what they mean. We attended Year 4 Mass to further our understanding on how the church celebrates the Liturgy of the Word and how we can reverence God’s word. We look forward to starting our new Unit, Pentecost and exploring how it is the Holy Spirit, alive and active in our loves, who gives us courage to follow Jesus.
