A Season of Excitement
Preparing for the Birth of Jesus
As Mary and Joseph waited, we are also waiting to celebrate the greatest gift given, Jesus. This means preparing our hearts and homes for Him to enter, as this is where our Lord will dwell. St. Augustine reminds us of the longing we have for Jesus that pushes us forth with excitement, especially during the Advent season.
St. Augustine of Hippo
As we break out the decorations and pour hot cocoa, it’s a good time for us to remember that we are also in a prayerful season, pondering the goodness and excitement to come when the Christmas season begins on December 25th. We are given a glimpse of the joy that comes with the nearness of Christ from St. Elizabeth during the visitation:
This is why we encourage our students to be joyful in their Christmas celebrations each day, keeping an open heart ready to receive Christ and all the gifts that His birth brings.
Celebrate Advent Like a Lion
Jesus Christ humbled Himself to be with us, to know us, and to love us. This is a precious gift that we, as a school, get to dive deeper into with our students, allowing their understanding of the Catholic faith to grow. What better way to spend this December than filling with excitement at the nearing of Jesus’ birth?
If you want your child to grow in knowledge and faith while celebrating, Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School is right for you! Give us a call at (337) 234-5510 or visit our Admissions page to learn more about how your child can become a lion.
