Thanksgiving heralds a time to be thankful for God’s abundant gifts. As the season of giving reigns supreme, schools begin to shift gears to focus on the biggest giving effort in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston: Steps for Students. This annual event, which is on Feb. 17, 2018, brings Catholic schools and sponsors together to benefit and raise awareness for Catholic education.

No había tenido el honor de conocer al Beato Pier Giorgio Frassati (1901-1925) hasta que tuve la oportunidad el año pasado en la Jornada Mundial de Jóvenes de estar junto a su cuerpo y también leí un libro acerca de su vida.
There’s something about sharing a meal with someone that is more than just getting food to satisfy hunger or catching up. Walls come down. It is a chance to let your hair down, so to speak, set the craziness of the world aside, and just be with someone. You get an opportunity to share your thoughts and hear about theirs.
Blessed Frassati was named “The Man of the Eight Beatitudes” by St. John Paul II. Although he died at only 24 years of age he became the model of lay people all over the world. He had a normal life, had a hard time in college, loved to have fun and was a member of student social justice clubs.
During Advent, we wait for our Savior, while these precious children wait for their saviors every day of the year. The Scripture we read in Advent gives us a clear example to follow when we see a child in need of a parent and shows us what to do when we are paralyzed and can’t respond.
