Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
As we move through the period of Lent it is a very good time to reflect on the things that are important in life. We live in a world where bigger is better, where money is very important and where everything is
always a rush.
Lent in the secular world appears like any other period of time but for Christians we can reflect on the
sacrifices that Jesus made. We can strive to be a better person by reflecting on what is really important to us. Family; friends; health; happiness.
I read somewhere recently that the commodity that the very rich covet the most is time. They want to make the most of their time. They have a driver so that they don’t waste time in traffic, they hire people to do all the little tasks enabling them to focus on what is really important. Spending time with people they care about.
We all become guilty of trying to cram more and more into our days but in lent try to take a little time to reflect on what is really important.
Have a great week, -Mike Brosnahan
