Fan into flame the gift of God which is in you.    2 Timothy 1:6

Dear Saint Raphael Parents and Friends,

Three of our Saint Raphael students were baptized last Saturday. It was a beautiful ceremony and a reminder that in baptism we are called to live a life of faith and humbly love others as Jesus did. As the priest asked, “What name do you give this child?” we are reminded that God calls each of us by name. He knows us.

Baptism gives us the gift of God. How do we do what St. Timothy said in the quote above, “Fan into flame the gift of God which is in you?” It sounds a little like St. Catherine of Siena, “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” Fire and flames are powerful. Let us teach our children to use the power of their faith, this gift from baptism, to transform the world!

Faith in action is what we try to model. The Interact Club at Saint Raphael School is collecting gently used coats to give to the poor. Please send your coats in and make one small difference in these cold months.

The online auction is coming soon! There is still time to make your family donation if you have not yet done so.

The Feast of St. Francis de Sales is this Friday. God made it clear to St. Francis de Sales the road he was to take in life. He was out riding his horse one day and fell off three times. Each time his sword and scabbard (the piece that holds the sword) fell to the ground in the shape of a cross.

God calls each one of us by name. Don’t miss the signs that God is very much a part of our lives.
