Our Class Saint
St. Phillip Neri
“Christian joy is a gift of God flowing from a good conscience.”
The children almost unanimously decided upon St. Phillip Neri as our class saint this year for 2 main reasons. The first is that he is the patron saint of joy, and this epitomises our classroom as well as giving us an excellent way to live our lives.
“Do not grieve over the temptations you suffer. When the Lord intends to bestow a particular virtue on us, He often permits us first to be tempted by the opposite vice. Therefore, look upon every temptation as an invitation to grow in a particular virtue and a promise by God that you will be successful, if only you stand fast.”
This quote also spoke to a lot of us in Year 5 & 6. The idea that each temptation was a gift from God to grow in the opposite virtue was something that really resonated with many children.
