6th Sunday of Easter 

John 14:23-29

 

“The Advocate, the Holy Spirit… will teach you everything….”

..You heard me tell you,

‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’

If you loved me,

you would rejoice that I am going to the Father;

for the Father is greater than I.

And now I have told you this before it happens,

so that when it happens you may believe

St. Thomas Aquinas, in his Summary of Theology, teaches that

“Christ’s Ascension into Heaven, [by which] He withdrew…

from us, was more profitable for us

” because it can “increase our faith, which is of things unseen.”

The apostle Thomas stands as a contrast to such a life of faith.

Doubting Thomas would not believe until he saw the Risen Lord.

Jesus calls us, instead, to fit our lives to His words:

 

 “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe” 

[John 20:29]

OUR SCHOOL:       
           

     We wish everyone a very safe and blessed Memorial Day Weekend! This week at school will be very busy - we have a band concert on Tuesday, Middle School is taking final exams and our 8th graders graduate on Friday!   Our Graduation Mass will begin at 2:00 pm in the Church, and all are welcome to attend and support our 8th grade students as they move on in their academic career. Many of these students have been here since PreK, so it will be difficult to say good-bye, but we wish them all of the best as they move forward! Please keep them, as well as their families, in your thoughts and prayers as they take this next big step.     

     The school year is almost finished - our last day is June 7th You are welcome to stop by any time to see our wonderful students in action and join in the many end of year activities.  You are also always welcome to join us daily for our morning and afternoon prayers either in person or via our Live Stream broadcast.  Visit our website, www.saintjohnsschool.org , for a link to our daily broadcasts at 8:05 am and 2:50 pm so that you can join us every day for prayer.

of  St. John's School."

                                  
  




 

 

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (St. John the Evangelist, Apostle; John 1:1-5).
