Having faith can be tough. It means believing in something that you cannot know for certain and in a world where there is almost an answer for everything this can be difficult. Have a think about your faith and what you believe in. What makes it hard to believe in God?

Asking questions is a really important part of growing in faith so this week make some time to ask questions of the people around you – ask them why they believe what they do and through this try and understand your own faith a little bit more.

    We use the word ‘faith’ a lot, do we really know what it means though?

    Write your own definition for the word ‘faith’. Add it to the comments box below 🙂

     

    Has anyone ever told you that they have faith in you.  It’s a wonderful compliment, to know that they believe in you!

    What goals do you have in life? What are your life dreams?  You can reach them if you just have a little bit of faith in yourself!

    Take sometime today to think about what you want to achieve.  How will you achieve them?  How will you start your journey? What can you do right now to start you on your path?

    We’d love to hear your comments below.

    In our lives, there are many changing seasons. We go from feeling joyful and close to the Lord, to grieving and feeling like he is distant. We wrestle with our doubts and questions, wondering if God even hears us or if he is even real. Our faith decreases when we look around us, not up God and His purpose. No Christian goes through this life without feeling weak in their faith at times, but we all can take comfort in knowing our God is here – He is with us in every season, whether good or bad.

    Dear God,

    Thank you for helping us to make it through this difficult year. Thank you that you’ve carried us through the uncertainty of deep waters, through the flames of trials, and through the pain of hard losses. We are constantly aware of how much we need you, your grace, your strength, your power working through even the toughest days.

    Help us to keep our focus first on you this season. Please forgive us for giving too much time and attention to other things, for looking to other people before coming to you first. Help us to reflect again, on you. Thank you that you came to give new life, peace, hope, and joy. Thank you that your power is made perfect in our weakness.

    Amen

     

    We end by making the Sign of the Cross.

    We are really good at exercising our bodies and minds, but how good are you at exercising your faith?

     

    There are so many ways you can excerise (show) your faith.  It can be through helping others, being the best version of yourself by using your God given talents, practicing something you’re not good at in order to improve, praying for others, the list goes on and on!

    Create your own ‘I exercise my faith when….’ poster.

    How do you show that you love and appreciate everything you have in life?

    Lord Jesus,

    The world is changing so fast. Every day the media relays tales of those who disregard law, devise evil, and destroy both people and property. And because of what’s happening, fear sometimes rises up in my heart—for me, for those I love, and for people everywhere. Yet I know you are in control.

    I ask you today for your supernatural protection, Lord—both personally and globally. Please station angels around my home and family to guard them from danger. Lead us away from temptation and help us to run from the presence of questionable activities or harmful influences. When we’re weak, help us to look up to you and to hold on tight to the truth that you love us and want the best for us.

    We end with the Sign of the Cross.

    The letter to the Hebrews describes faith as:

    To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.

    Hebrews 11:1

    We place our faith in one another and today we will be thinking about how we can work together for the good of The All Saints’ School community.

    Let us make the best of this time and think about how we can improve our school community when we return.

    1. We offer students the chance to go to The Briars, Lourdes and Flame but what other opportunities would you like to help strengthen your faith? What could we make even better about the trips we already offer?
    1. Catholic Education is about more than just getting good grades but what could we do more of to help every student develop their whole person?
    1. Our Parishes are an important part of our School community but what could we do so that we can reach out and connect with them even more effectively? How would you like to be involved?
    1. Any other comments/ suggestions for our school community…
