The Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School

One Body in Christ

As St Paul identified we, as a School community, are one body in Christ and we each bring our gifts and talents to make the body whole.

 As St Paul identified we, as a School community, are one body in Christ and we each bring our gifts and talents to make the body whole.

For the past two weeks in the school, our new Year 7 Students have been enjoying the pleasures of being on a retreat and taking time to reflect upon their relationship with God, but also their relationships with each other. The day is focused around St Pauls First letter to the Corinthians in which he writes:

"Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ."

 

And so this is exactly what our community is like, though there are many individuals all with our own gifts and abilities that make up the Body of Cardinal Wiseman, we are all joined together in our combined search for education for all in the name of Christ. Our individualities are made for the purpose of making the body well balanced and productive, as an example some of us are perhaps great thinkers and make up the brain of the body, some perhaps romantics and passionate about our environment and make up the heart where as some are hard workers and are the hands and feet. No matter what we offer each of us has a relevance that no other brings and so together we create one whole body that is Omnia Pro Christo.

Prayer: 

As one body in Christ we pray that you will be with us as we try and live and work together as you call us. Help us appreciate each other—all our differences and all our similarities, yet we know that we can work together using our individual gifts that you have given us. Bless all of the students, teachers and families here at Cardinal Wiseman and be with us in all that we do. Amen.
