Words from St. John Baptist de la Salle
“Earnestly ask Jesus that his Spirit may be alive in you.”
The Brothers’ Way
The young boys who enter CBHS are challenged to grow into young men of faith and character. Throughout their experience as a Brothers’ Boy, they will learn about the Brothers’ Way—a set of virtues that each Brothers’ Boy should embody in his life. Each month throughout the school year, teachers and students will focus on a different virtue in order to expand their understanding of themselves and the world around them. These virtues each connect to one of the 5 Lasallian Core Principles.
During the months of February and March, we focus specifically on the Lasallian Core Principle—Faith in the Presence of God. Without faith, CBHS would not exist. Every day and every class we pray. Consistently spending time with God in prayer gives us zeal for life. When we are committed to God, the Holy Spirit moves us and we become zealous. The Brothers’ Way virtue for March is Zeal. We want a rich life that is driven and passionate, but it all starts with prayer. Consider the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” Take some time this month to discuss with your son the importance of zeal not only in his prayer life but in all aspects of life.
Prayer for Zeal
Lord of Life,
You desire that all should turn back to you and live. You are the Father of all the living. Pour into my soul your life and goodness. Fill me with zeal for your good and holy will. Help me overcome the sins of apathy and indifference. Give me strength to joyfully embrace the cross with your Son. I invite your Holy Spirit to live in me and move me throughout this day, so that I may be a lively Christian to all those around me. Amen.
Lasallian Youth will be joining CBHS Sacramento on their Civil Rights Trip to Memphis March 5 & 6. Contact Mr. Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
