Dear Parish Family: I would like to devote this column to our students of both Arma and Girard. We are starting a new academic year. This is a good opportunity to reﬂect on the gifts of thought and reason which God has given to us and the gift of an education which millions of our ancestors did not have. Since knowledge is precious, and ignorance can be deadly, we must resolve to take full advantage of this gift of education. A good education squandered in youth is very difﬁcult to make up for as an adult. And cramming all night before a major test usually produces dim results. Therefore let us decide now to be studious students, determined to study and learn. There of course is nothing wrong with fun and games, but only after our scholastic duties are done. We must remember that God wants us to be smart Catholics, well educated and equipped mentally to spread his kingdom. It does not please God if we keep ourselves ignorant either deliberately or through sloth. God gave us a mind; he wants us to strengthen it. So let us always put homework ahead of video games and our favorite band. We will enjoy them more anyway if all of our academic duties are ﬁnished. Know that all of you students and your families will be in my prayers during this entire academic year! God bless you, Fr. Max
