Virtues Day: 3rd February
Today, we celebrated Virtues Day across school. Virtues are the special gifts we are given from God. Our mission is to use our gifts every day. We are class....
Izabela: 'Forgiveness is when you give someone another chance when they have done something wrong so they can make a fresh start.'
Sammy: 'You let go of your feelings of sadness or anger and you show your love for that person so they can make a change.'
We know that forgiveness is extremely important because some of us are going to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation this year.
We thought about the different ways we can show forgiveness and made our own forgiving person to help us when we struggle to forgive others.
We then turned to Jesus and what he taught about forgiveness:
“Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.” (Matthew 18:21-22)
