This series shares reflections for educators contributed by Justin McClain, teacher at Bishop McNamara High School and author of Called to Teach: Daily Inspiration for Catholic Educators. The weekly reflections are a regular feature in our Friday Weekly Round Up blog posts on www.nceatalk.org – check back each Friday for a new weekly reflection.
Fifth Sunday of Lent – April 2, 2017
Gospel Reading: John 11:1-45
“If one walks during the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if one walks at night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”
The Catholic school educator has the opportunity to lead his or her students to “[walk] during the day.” The world on the other side of your school community’s walls is in need of Christian hope, because there is much darkness. Many of your students have certain darkness within their own lives, due to family struggles beyond their control, and various other circumstances. Pray for them to come to the Lord’s light.
How do you lead your students to be illuminated by the light of Christ?
