Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
As we begin ‘Holy Week’ and move through the end of Lent and into the season of Easter, it is a good time to focus on how the ideas of Christianity are visible in our modern world.
Each time we come into contact with other people we need to think of some of those important themes that Jesus spoke of: the ‘golden rule’ (do to others as you would have them do to you); let he who is with-out sin cast the first stone, and to learn that forgiveness is a key to moving on for both the sinner and the sinned against.
If we can apply these ideas into our lives we will become for more optimist and happier in our own lives. We will develop far more positive relationships with others and people will see us in a more positive light.
To really attempt to live a life close to Jesus we need apply all of these. Key thoughts all of the time and not just to pick out the bits we want to apply.
Treat other people as you want them to treat you, don’t hurt other people even if you think they have done wrong and to genuinely forgive people who do thing that hurt us.
If we do this then we don’t waste our time and energy on things that we really can’t change. But rather we change how we react to these things, in a positive way.
So as you celebrate Easter it is a great time to reflect on how the Christian message can help us to lead happier lives.
Have a happy and a holy Easter.
Have a great week
