It is in giving that we receive. The famous words of St. Francis of Assisi. Speaking of saints…happy ALL SAINTS DAY! Today was a special day for my students and I in our Kindergarten classroom. My students dressed as saints and had some special parts at Mass. We followed this up with some saintly centers in our classroom. It truly is my favorite day of the school year.
When teaching my students about the saints, it is most regularly noted that they all did selfless acts of charity. Many gave all they had to the poor. Others spent their lives in service to those in need. Some even went from living a rich seemingly perfect life to that of poverty and obedience to Christ’s call. What amazing examples the saints are to us in our lives. Sainthood is a goal many of us strive for and today is one of those days to reflect on that and also how we can be more giving.
In that same sense, we can give to those in need and we can practice selfless acts of love and compassion each day. Without further delay I announce to you my Thanks and Giving Giftaway! If you know me you know about the special place in my heart for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
