What our parents say about us

 

  • “It’s not just a school, it’s a community of teachers, faculty, parents and priests; and because of this community, we think our children are much better prepared to face their next steps in life. Our decision nine years ago was a good one.” - Parent of students in grades 8, 7 and 4.

  • “Our Lady of Lourdes not only focuses on education but the staff also stresses a great moral environment which I believe has had a great influence on my children.  As my children have developed into teenagers, I believe Our Lady of Lourdes’ teaching has truly helped them make good education and good moral decisions during these tough teenage years.” - Parent of students in grade 8.

The Ninth Commandment and Misplaced Desires

                                                                                                

Something does not need to be lost in order to be classified as “misplaced.” We typically think of those two words as synonymous; however, there is a difference. If something is lost, it means that we are having trouble locating it. If something is misplaced, it simply means it is in the wrong place such as a, misplaced comma in a sentence (such as the one I inserted in this sentence). It is with this understanding that we can talk about misplaced desires. A misplaced desire is not a “lost” desire but rather a desire that is “in the wrong place.” St. Ignatius teaches us that our desires are not bad and that we should pay attention to them, because sometimes we misplace them. The Ninth Commandment, “You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife,” is about misplaced desires and is the focus of this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis.
