OUR LADY ACADEMY MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS
Monday, December 18, 2017

Good Morning OLA!   Today is Monday, December 18, 2017.  Please stand for prayer. 

Morning Offering and Special Intentions:
Let us offer our special intentions for Mrs. Mayer’s mother-in-law, Mrs. Bennett’s husband and their families.   

Morning Prayer:
Father, all-powerful God, your eternal Word took flesh on our earth when the Virgin Mary placed her life at the service of your plan. Lift our minds in watchful hope to heart the voice which announces his glory and open our minds to receive the Spirit who prepares us for his coming. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Jesse Tree.   Monday, December 18 – Lily
The lily symbolizes Mary, the Mother of Christ. Mary is one of the greatest heroes of Scripture.  Speaking to one of God’s messengers must have been terrifying, and she was taking great risk when she said yes to becoming the mother of the Messiah. She was a young girl living in a small village where every fault is criticized.  She faced an unknown future and punishment by being young, pregnant, and without a husband. 

Her bravery and decision made it possible for us to discover what it means to live in Jesus. 
Mary didn’t tell God that his way was too hard.  She accepted her calling willingly and with great love.  We pray that she will point us to closer relationship with Jesus and that we will learn from her to say YES to God’s plan for our lives despite any difficulty and fear.

Please remain standing for the Pledge:
I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which is stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

OLA Sports this Week:
Congratulations to the OLA Junior High Soccer team on their 4-0 win over St Patrick on Saturday. With goals by: Lilly Lundgren, Liza Richoux and 2 by Ava McArthur. Lexie Ladner had a shut out in the goal.

Morning Offering and Special Intentions:
Let us offer our special intentions for Mrs. Mayer’s mother-in-law, Mrs. Bennett’s husband and their families.

Amen.

The Jesse Tree.   Friday, December 15 – Temple
David’s son, Solomon, is honored in Scripture as the wisest monarch. When God offered Solomon anything he wanted, Solomon prayed for wisdom so that he could be a good leader of God’s people. Though he used a real sword to make his point, he used his wisdom, the sword of justice, to divide truth from lies.
God foretold that David's son and heir, Solomon, would be the one to build a temple to the Lord God. Solomon did in fact complete the construction of the temple during his reign. The Temple became a great place of worship, sacrifice, and pilgrimage for the Israelites. 
May we look to God and His Word as we seek to grow in knowledge, wisdom, and truth.

Please remain standing for the Pledge:
I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which is stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

The Jesse Tree.   Thursday, December 14 – Crown
The crown is a symbol for David, the greatest of the Kings of Israel.  God saw that even though David was flawed, he had a deep faith.  He chose David to be king even when he was just a small boy. David was a great poet, and in the psalms he described God as a rock, fortress, stronghold, deliverer, shield, and refuge.  God aids David with great forced of nature which help him defeat his enemies.  Even though David is not always faithful, God is, and God’s covenant to David is steadfast and enduring.

OUR LADY ACADEMY MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS
Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Good Morning OLA!   Today is Wednesday, December 13, 2017.  Please stand for prayer. 

Morning Offering and Special Intentions:
Let us offer our special intentions for Mrs. Mayer’s mother-in-law and Mrs. Bennett’s husband and their families.   We especially offer our prayer of thankfulness for the return of our classmate Maci Clarke as we pray:  Lord, we thank you for the lives of our OLA students.  We thank you that we are healthy. We pray that you will protect our bodies and help them to continue to grow strong.  Protect us from illness and harm, Lord.  As Maci returns to school today, we pray that she will know that she is created in your image.  We pray that she will know that she is “fearfully and wonderfully made”.  We pray that she will know that You created Maci exactly the way that you want her to be.  Protect her heart and help Maci to rest in the truth that she is a priceless gift to us and, most importantly, to You…so much so that you sent your son for Maci and for all of us at OLA.  Amen.

The Jesse Tree.  
Wednesday, December 13 – Baby in a Basket
Today we place the baby in a basket on the Jesse Tree to symbolize God’s covenant with Moses.  Moses means “drawn for the water.”  He was saved from the killing of the firstborn Israelites by Pharaoh when his mother placed him in a basket in the river.  Pharaoh’s daughter found him and raised him.  God revealed his name “I am who I am” to Moses and called him to set the Israelites free from slavery in Egypt.  Moses led them out following the Passover and received the Ten Commandments from God.  May we be reminded of the covenant we made with God in our Baptism.  May we strive to honor our relationship with him and live lives that love God and neighbor.

Please remain standing for the Pledge:
I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which is stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
