A Message from the Chaplain
When he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. He began to teach them… (Mt 5:1-2)
Jesus Christ has many titles – Son of God, Lamb of God, Savior of the World, King of the Universe. But his disciples called Him one thing above all else: Rabbi, meaning Teacher. Jesus is a teacher. He spent a great deal of his time teaching people. He spoke with authority, interpreting the Jewish Scriptures and adding to them with his parables and exhortations. He taught in the synagogues and in the streets, on the mountains and in the plains. He is the greatest teacher of all because He is the one who teaches us how to be ourselves most fully.
While the apostles learned from the words of Jesus, they learned much more from being in His presence. Christ is truly present in our school. The students learn about Him here not just in religion class or in the chapel in all that we do. Our community bears witness to Him in every aspect, from academics to sports, from extracurriculars to service.
Nearly two thousand years after Jesus’ earthly ministry, He continues to teach us. Every day, our students, teachers, and staff are invited to listen more intently.
Whoever has ears, ought to hear. (Mt 11:15)
God bless you.
