Today is Ash Wednesday! We will live stream our Mass on Facebook this morning at 10:10 AM. Please join us!

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. It is a season of penance, reflection, and fasting that prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which we attain redemption. Following the example of the Ninevites, who did penance in sackcloth and ashes, our foreheads are marked with ashes to humble our hearts and remind us that life passes away on Earth. We remember this when we are told "Remember, Man is dust, and unto dust you shall return."

Today is the Feast Day of Saint Scholastica, sister of Saint Benedict! Read on to the Catholic Diocese of Memphis' post for the inspiring story of their final conversation together. Saint Scholastica, please pray for us!

Today, Feb. 10, is the Feast of Saint Scholastica (Abbess). The story and history of St. Scholastica is that she was the sister of the great patriarch St. Benedict and under his direction, she founded and governed a large community near Monte Casino. St. Gregory sums up her life by saying that she devoted herself to God from her childhood and that her pure soul went to God in the likeness of a dove, as if to show that her life had been enriched with the fullest gifts of the Holy Spirit. Her brother would visit her every year, for “she could not be sated or wearied with the words of grace which flowed from his lips.” On his last visit, after a day passed in spiritual converse, the Saint, knowing that her end was near, said, “My brother, leave me not, I pray you, this night, but speak with me until dawn on the bliss of those who see God in heaven.” Benedict would not, break his rule at the bidding of natural affection; and then the Saint bowed her head on her hands and prayed; and there arose a storm so violent that he could not return to his monastery, and they passed the night in heavenly conversation. Three days later St. Benedict saw in a vision the soul of his sister going up in the likeness of a dove into heaven. Then he gave thanks to God for the graces He had given her, and for the glory which had crowned them. When she died, St. Benedict, her spiritual daughters, and the monks sent by St. Benedict mingled their tears and prayed, “Alas! alas! dearest mother, to whom do you leave us now? Pray for us to Jesus, to whom you are gone.” They then devoutly celebrated Holy Mass, “commending her soul to God;” and her body was borne to Monte Casino, and laid by her brother in the tomb he had prepared for himself. “And they bewailed her many days;” and St. Benedict said, “Weep not, sisters and brothers; for assuredly Jesus has taken her before us to be our aid and defence against all our enemies, that we may stand in the evil day and be in all things perfect.” She died about the year 543. St. Scholastica, please pray for us!

Cam Jones, St. Benedict alumnus and linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, stopped by his alma mater today before heading to the Super Bowl! He hand delivered flowers to one of his previous teachers, Bertha Rodriguez, who taught him Spanish.

He was recently injured and likely won’t be playing in the Super Bowl, but he was an integral part of the season and helped the team make it to the final game. He took photos with St. Benedict students, and even took time to watch our cheerleaders perform before they head to Nationals tomorrow. Thank you, Cam! 🦅

The results are in! Your St. Benedict Girls Bowling team is the State Runner-Up, and the Boys Bowling team tied for 3rd place! In addition, sophomore Jackson Roberts finished 2nd in the individual championships, and senior Zoe Crider finished 5th. We are so proud and congratulate all of these athletes on an incredibly successful season. Head Coach Deacon Jeff Drzycimski summed up the season best: "For anyone who thinks this is 'just bowling,' it's not. This is an opportunity to help our children to trust, know and love each other…and Jesus. This program (and others like it at SBA) builds character, helps them to believe in themselves, teaches them about their own dignity and the dignity of others, and is part of God's plan to transform the world. All that, believe it or not, from 'just bowling.'"
