Sr Rosalie Rendu

Each year 7th February celebrates the life of Sr Rosalie Rendu, a member of the Sisters of St Vincent De Paul. Sr Rosalie was a great help to Frederic Ozanam who set up the tremendous St Vincent de Paul Society which is so well known for its great work for the poor. In 2003 Pope John Paul declared her Blessed Rosalie Rendu and the cause for her canonisation continues.
Blessed Rosalie is a fine example to all of us for her prayer life, her self-sacrificing life style and her generous work for the poor. The Daughters of St Vincent de Paul pray that her final stage to sainthood will come soon.

The attached powerpoint tells of Blessed Rosalie. We will soon be starting Lent and the Church encourages us to pray, to make sacrifices and to give alms, all of which we can see inspiration in the life of Blessed Rosalie. This week on the Teams/Google Platform for each RE Class, the pupils will be encouraged to put some quiet time aside to view this powerpoint, spend some time reflecting on the example of Blessed Rosalie and to plan out ‘what they are doing for Lent’.

S3 Work Week Beginning Monday 1 February 2021.

So far we have looked at the harm which poverty causes in people’s lives. We have looked at some of the causes such as natural disasters and war. This week we look at an on-going injustice which prevents people from breaking away from poverty. This is unfair trade and it is something from which we all benefit at the expense of others but we can do something about it.
Watch our over the next month or so for much puplicity on this in ‘Fairtrade Fortnight’.

The work is to be completed for Wednesday 8 February 2021.

Poverty unit Lesson 4

S1 Work For Week Beginning Monday 1 February 2021.

Last lesson, we looked at Abraham, the Founder of Judaism, and the great promises which God made to him and to the people. This week we examine the Torah. The Torah is the Jewish Law and each Jew will try to live his/her life according to the Torah. However, not only is the Law respected but the actual scrolls on which the Torah is written is treated with the greatest respect.

The Prayer Process.

‘The Prayer Process’
Prayer is what helps nourish our faith and yet it can sometimes be difficult to know how to pray, especially if you haven’t done it in a while. ‘The Prayer Process’ was developed to help people with their daily prayers (it’s from the Rediscover Jesus which you will hopefully get to read in RE). Please use this to help you draw closer to God, receive his comfort and reflect upon his will for your life.
During this busy time when we are all so busy and especially with online learning and any worries or concerns we may have about ourselves, or family, friends and out society, you will find it helpful to take a few minutes in quiet prayer.

Each day, put some time by for you to reflect and pray. You should talk to others in your family and as a family you could spend time in prayer.
