“Be steadfast and persevering” 1 Corinthians 15:58
September sees the start of the new school year and we are thrilled to welcome the students back to the campus of our neighbors, the College of Saint Benedict.
Starting the school year is a time when many of us feel reinvigorated and determined to approach life with a positive attitude. The quote from 1 Corinthians reminds us that it isn’t enough simply to begin; we also have to commit to following through. For Benedictines, seeking God through a life of prayer and work is the call to which we committed at the time of our profession. September is a time to check on how we are doing in following through on that call. What commitment in your life does God ask you to consider?
