St. Katharine Drexel

Several years ago, when I was a middle-school teacher, I looked with fear and trepidation at the beginning of the new school year. You see, the incoming class was a class that was “notorious” since kindergarten! The issue, I was told, was that each of them thought they were in charge! Knowing that I was going to face a difficult year if I didn’t use this as an opportunity to teach about the importance of service, I took it to prayer.
