LET US TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT ON THIS COMING WEEKEND'S READINGS

October 9, 2022
Twenty Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Naaman went down and plunged into the Jordan seven times
at the word of Elisha, the man of God.
His flesh became again like the flesh of a little child,
and he was clean of his leprosy.
2 Kings 5: 14-15

But if we deny him
he will deny us.
If we are unfaithful
he remains faithful,
for he cannot deny himself.
2 Timothy 2:12-13

 

"Ten were cleansed, were they not?
Where are the other nine?
Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?"
Then he said to him, "Stand up and go;
your faith has saved you."
Luke 17:18-19

Safety in Bathrooms and Cafeterias

Did You Know?

At school, bathrooms and cafeterias tend to have informal social rules that differ from those in the classroom. That is why parents should talk to their children about what to do in these settings, especially if bullying or some kind of abusive behavior is happening. Talk about what to do when a classmate says another student is not welcome to join a group at the lunch table, or what to do if another student engages in coercive behavior that puts someone else at risk. For more tips, request a copy of the VIRTUS® article “Three Things That Simply Must Be Done” at lacatholics.org/did-you-know/

¿Sabia Que?

Hable con sus hijos sobre la seguridad en baños y cafeterias - En la escuela, los baños y las cafeterías tienden a tener normas sociales informales que difieren de las del aula de clase. Es por eso que los padres deben hablar con sus hijos sobre qué hacer en estos entornos, especialmente si está ocurriendo intimidación o algún tipo de comportamiento abusivo. Hable sobre qué hacer cuando un compañero de clase dice que otro estudiante no es bienvenido a unirse a un grupo en la mesa del almuerzo, o qué hacer si otro estudiante se involucra en un comportamiento inapropiado que pone a otra persona en riesgo. Para obtener más consejos, solicite una copia del artículo en inglés de VIRTUS® “Three Things That Simply Must Be Done” (Tres cosas
que simplemente deben hacerse) en lacatholics.org/did-you-know/.
