Catholic Schools Week 2022

Inspiration from Mother Luisita
 “I pray that you’ll become a little saint, helping those around you so that they, too, may become saints.” – Mother Luisita

“Keep well and be what you are supposed to be–a saint.” – Mother Luisita

“May your virtues increase every day and become more solid, as you grow in age and reflect more as a grown-up, getting to know the world with all its facets, and seeing suffering as that wonderful school in which the great saints have acquired their sanctity.” – Mother Luisita

“The future belongs to God, Who loves us very much and gives us whatever is best for us…try to always be happy and joyful in whatever setting God permits you.” – Mother Luisita

Inspiration from Don Bosco

Run, jump, have all the fun you want at the right time, but, for heaven’s sake, do not commit sin!” Don Bosco

“Servite Domino in laetitia!” (Serve the Lord joyfully!) Don Bosco

“Do not put off till tomorrow the good you can do today. You may not have a tomorrow.” Don Bosco

“Study to become very rich, but rich in virtue, because the greatest of all treasures is the holy fear of God.”

“I exhort the students to use earthly knowledge as a stepping stone to heavenly things – virtue and its practice.”

“Learning always requires effort, the degree of which depends on one’s intelligence. Therefore, take heart and don’t give up. It is a mistake to skirt difficulties or to skip what you don’t understand and go on to something else. Tackle the obstacle until you have overcome it. To succeed in this, have recourse first of all to Jesus and Mary by a devout short prayer. Your difficulties will disappear….God alone is the source and giver of knowledge; He grants it to whomever He wishes and as He wishes.” Don Bosco

“Do you want your companions to respect you? Always think well of everyone, and be ready to help others. Do this and you will be happy.” Don Bosco

Inspiration from St. John Paul II
“Dear young people, let yourselves be taken over by the light of Christ, and spread that light wherever you are.” St. John Paul II

“It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives.” St. John Paul II

“Do not be afraid. Do not be satisfied with mediocrity. Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch… I plead with you–never, ever give up on hope, never doubt, never tire, and never become discouraged. Be not afraid.” St. John Paul II

“We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father’s love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son.” St. John Paul II

“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.” St. John Paul II

“The most beautiful and stirring adventure that can happen to you is the personal meeting with Jesus, who is the only one who gives real meaning to our lives.” St. John Paul II

“Be generous in your active life, young people, and be deeply immersed in the contemplation of God’s mystery. Make the Eucharist the heart of your day.” St. John Paul II

“Do not be afraid to be the saints of the new millennium.” St. John Paul II
