From last Sunday's Gospel:
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for the kingdom of God is yours.
Blessed are you who are now hungry,
for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who are now weeping,
for you will laugh.
Blessed are you when people hate you,
and when they exclude and insult you,
and denounce your name as evil
on account of the Son of Man.
Rejoice and leap for joy on that day!
Behold, your reward will be great in heaven"
Today, as in Jesus’s time, there is nothing new under the sun. Many seek happiness via material possessions, prestige, comfort, and good feelings. And perhaps these things make us happy for a time; ultimately, however, none denotes righteousness or suitability for heaven. In fact, relying on worldly accomplishments can lull us into a false sense of complacency, allowing us to believe we already “have it made.” It is only when we allow ourselves to detach from possessions and achievement that we recognize our complete and total dependence upon our good and gracious God.
Righteousness is the Virtue of Month

Scouts Crayon Initiative
Thank you to all who have donated their used / broken crayons!
Let's continue to support our Brownie Level 2 Girl Scouts (Abby Rivera, Olivia Peneyra, and Isabel Reburiano) complete their Brownie Project to help others in the community. Bring your old, broken or unwanted crayons to school till Friday, February 22nd. There are collection boxes in each classroom. All crayons will be donated to the Crayon Initiative, a Bay Area non-profit organization that melts and re-molds the crayons and then delivers them to sick children in hospitals across the United States. Thank you for your support!
