Relationships can be really tricky to manage. There’s so many different types of relationships, and balancing them all with everything else that we need to do in our daily lives can be difficult. In the Bible we often hear about showing love to others and to God, and this is where our relationships should be rooted. This week we’re going to explore relationships in a bit more depth, and not just the stereotypical “romantic” relationships but our deeper relationships of friendship and family.

  • Well done to the Chaplaincy team who represented the Our Lady of Lourdes Trust at the Cathedral on Friday.  You were wonderful!
  • This week we welcome Bishop Patrick into school to celebrate mass.  This is a great honour and I’m sure it will be a wonderful event.
  • Last week we celebrated the year 7 and 12 ‘Welcome Mass’.  Thank you to our readers and servers.  It was a beautiful service.
  • Vicki will be filming everyone this week for the word of the week ‘Saints’. Please have a think about who your favourite Saint is and why!

We start with the Sign of the Cross.Image of St. Teresa of Avila

Today is the feast day of St Teresa of Avila. She had a really interesting life, spending a lot of time in doubt and worry, unsure of what path to take. When she was young she struggled to balance her relationships with her Father and her Mother. Her father was an incredibly honest and pious man, who always taught his children not to lie. Her mother loved romantic novels, but her husband objected to these so she hid them from him. Teresa loved these novels too, but her mother told her not to tell her father that she had them. Teresa really struggled with this, should she tell her father and not lie or should she keep her promise to her mother? This is just one example of her trying to juggle her two very different relationships.
