Pope Francis On Happiness
In an earlier WW, we featured an article on Pope Francis's emphasis on the Beatitudes as a road to happiness. In a recent interview, Pope Francis offered more guidelines to achieving greater happiness. These included:
- Let go of the negative;
- Live and let live;
- Be giving of yourself to others;
- Be kind, humble, and calm;
- Have a healthy sense of leisure;
- Make Sundays a day for family time, not work;
- Find dignified work for young people;
- Care for creation;
- Inspire through witness and engage in dialogue; and
- Promote peace.

On another note, STORYTELLING will now be on Mondays, not Tuesdays.
The Soccer team remains undefeated, after a convincing Monday home win against Notre Dame and a narrow, hard fought and well-deserved Thursday victory over St. Peter and Paul in New Braunfels. Next week, our Mavs take on St. Thomas More on Monday and St. John Berchman on Thursday. Go Mavs!
Our football team kicked off their season in fantastic fashion, easily defeating St. James on Tuesday and narrowly defeating St. John Berchman on Wednesday. Next week, they take on St. Leo's on Tuesday and St. James (Seguin) on Wednesday. Go Mavs!
Our Volleyball team continues to make great strides. This weekend, they're striving for the championship at the Providence High School Tournament. Earlier this week, the A Team defeated St. James on Tuesday and St. Peter and Paul in New Braunfels. The B Team came up short in both games, but continues to improve. Go Mavs!
