"If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all."

Mark 9:35

Dear Saint Raphael Parents and Friends,

I watched her pull the rake with long, smooth strokes so that the neighbor’s yard was free of leaves in just a short time. Then she snuck back across the street and maybe only I saw the smile on her face. My mother delighted in humbly helping others. I suspect that our elderly neighbors knew it was her, but not because she told them. My mother taught me to “humbly serve others.”

The auction last Saturday was such a success because we are blessed with many in our community who “humbly serve others.” They worked long hours behind the scenes planning and organizing to make the event a success. We sat, we ate, and we enjoyed the evening because of those who humbly decorated the room, ran the credit cards, sold the drink tickets, tracked the donations, cooked, served, and cleaned. At the end of the evening they all go home, exhausted, but maybe smiling with pride because they were part of something beautiful.

So, I thank all those who humbly served on Saturday and on all the days leading up to “A Night in Paris.” Saint Raphael School Community has some remarkable people. Most importantly, our children see your example and learn to “humbly serve others.”

Lent begins next week with Ash Wednesday on March 6th. There are many ways to use this time to grow closer to God and to be that person whom God meant for us to be. Even the apostles wanted to be recognized as the first, the best. Jesus’ words to them also apply to us, “if anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.” Maybe this Lent we don’t give up things, but choose to give as we “humbly serve others.”
