From the Principal
The second Sunday in May is a day in Australia when we stop and say thank you to all our mums for who they are, and who we are because of their love.
A mother’s love is one of the clearest pictures of God’s love for us, His children. Mothers love, give of themselves, cook, clean, wash clothes, put Bandaids on scrapes, can be the first ones up in the morning or the last ones down at night.
When a mother faithfully attends to the needs of her baby, she can reminds us of an even bigger truth: that God will always be there and do what He has said, fulfilling what He has promised. We can take God at His word and rely upon Him. His love, mirrored in a mother’s love, endures through sleepless nights and exhausting days, in myriad and unmentionable ways.
“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.” 2 Corinthians 1:20
