We can encounter God in everyone we meet. Mother Teresa once said that when we meet people we are meeting Jesus in disguise. So every encounter that we have with a person, we should treat it as an encounter with Jesus. Each encounter with someone is an opportunity to show your faith, but that’s the same for every time someone encounters you, you need to be able to show them how brightly the light of Christ burns in your life. Not an easy task, but one that Mother Teresa can help us understand through this phrase, ‘Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.’

One of the ways of encountering Jesus that Fr Jonathan highlighted in the Word of the Week video is during Adoration – a time when we gather before the Blessed Sacrament to watch and pray in the presence of Christ.

At the end of September there was a huge Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool called ‘Adoremus’ where Catholics from all over the UK gathered to celebrate the opportunity that we have to encounter Christ in the Eucharist – the consecrated hosts that have become the Body of Christ.

This video shows what some of the Briars Team, and some other familiar faces, got up to at the Youth Eucharistic Congress. Watch out for Jo Boyce, the lead singer in CJM who wrote the song that we use in many of our Masses and Liturgies in school, the Magnificat!

During Thursday lunchtime this week there will be the opportunity to come to the Chapel (12:30-12:50) to take part in Adoration and to encounter Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

If you’ve not tried this before then it’s simply an opportunity to take part in some silent prayer in the presence of consecrated hosts and it will be a great opportunity to offer our half term of work to God.

Please come and join us if you can make it and if you want to know more then check out this video below!

As always we take time in our week to listen to Sunday’s Gospel.

Take some time and think about how you will make sure that everyone feels equal and respected in your classroom throughout today.
