Every Wednesday, students at the Jesuit Middle School of Omaha (Jesuit) attend a prayer service in the school commons area. Each class takes turns preparing and conducting the service for the entire student body. They select the theme, music, scripture passages and petitions. A sermon is then given by Fr. Jim, Fr. Neitzke, another staff member or a visiting minister.
On Wednesday, March 30, students were led in prayer and listened to a homily from the Most Reverend George J. Lucas, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Omaha. This service was organized by the eighth grade and their teacher, Mr. Brian Lindley. The theme, “Importance of Sacrifice,” focused on the reading from Romans 5: 1-9 and reflections from two students followed.
Struje Robinson said that “sacrifice is important to me because Jesus sacrificed his life for our sins. Sacrificing things may be hard, but at the end, something will come out of it that can help you in life. Sacrificing things will let Jesus know that you are worthy when he tells you not to do something.”
Emmanuel Agbeletey said that “sacrifice means a lot to me because the sacrifice of Jesus is what saved the human race. God sacrificed Jesus, His one and only son to save us. Sacrificing will make you stronger and more faithful to God.”
