Easter Reflection

20 Apr

It has been a couple of weeks but I thought it would be remiss of me not to mention the appointment of Pope Francis. Many people have said to me that with the appointment of Pope Francis they have noticed a change in the attitudes of many Catholics. I know in my own Religious Questions team and Religious Studies classes we have discussed this. I was astonished by the many people that said to me “we have a new Pope.” People are saying he has challenged many norms and has been far more ‘real’ in his involvement with the common man. Some—and not all of these were necessarily Church going people—also commented to me that there seemed to be a lot more people attending the various Easter ceremonies this year. It may be that Pope Francis’ approach to being Pope is giving people confidence again in the Church.

While there is still much healing and soul searching for many Catholics, to see people during Easter break feel this confidence in their Church, inspired perhaps by the appointment of Pope Francis, gives hope that the Church is looking to being renewed.

During the Easter break, I do hope you had the opportunity to ask your daughter about the Easter liturgies held at the College. These liturgies contained material that would have challenged them and then caused them to reflect deeply within their hearts on Christian values such as loyalty, acceptance, nurture, joy, truth, healing, dignity, service and life.

A question parents could ask their daughters is: ‘What do you remember most from the Easter liturgies held at Sacred Heart Girls College?’
