Dear Chaminade Family,
Throughout our Lenten season, our Chaminade community has been celebrating God’s amazing grace. God’s grace is the very essence of who we are and how we are called to manifest His presence in our everyday life.
Beginning with Palm Sunday, we have now entered into the holiest times of our Catholic tradition: Holy Week. This is a time in which we reflect upon and enter deeper into the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ: his life, death, and resurrection. Every Christian is called to contemplate upon this mystery to seek ways in which to follow Jesus and live out His amazing grace that comes with the gift of salvation.
The Marianist Three O’clock prayer that we pray everyday reminds us that we stand with Mary at the foot of Jesus’ cross, ready to receive the gift of His very own self, and manifest His love throughout the world in which we live in. This is the gift of being at a Marianist school. We encounter the love of Jesus Christ who offered Himself for us on the cross and resurrected to a new life that would bring us love, faith, hope, and joy. It is also through this encounter that we gather together with our brothers and sisters of other religious faith traditions to celebrate and recognize God’s infinite love in each other.
I pray that each of you may experience the love and joy that comes with Jesus’ resurrection as you rejuvenate your life and bring hope to others. May God’s blessings be upon each of you and your families as you celebrate the gift of God’s amazing grace!
