He gave himself up to humiliation, gossip and cruelty from those who hated him and did not understand him. He endured being scourged, being pierced by a crown of thorns, carrying his own death instrument, and being nailed to the cross. At the end, he asked the Father to forgive his executioners and those who watched and mocked him and laughed at him. We celebrate Jesus’ selfless act of love in giving himself completely to bring us back into union with the Father. There is no greater love……. New families are touring and registering every week, so we encourage current St. Mary families who will be registering for 2019-20 to register soon to guarantee a seat in the classrooom.
