NEW ENCOUNTERS

Students arriving at Villa Maria for the first time have many new encounters: other students, from many parts of Japan, each with a different personality and yet, each contributing new. Another new phase of their lives is to come in contact with God, through our daily prayers, but especially in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the great act of Christian worship.

At Mass, we praise God and beg His mercy. He responds to us through the holy words of His Gospel. When we hear from His own lips how great is His love for us, we went to express our desire to love Him in return. And so, in the Mass, gifts of bread and wine are offered gifts which are symbolic of our wills, our hearts, our love, our whole being. Then, our brother, Christ, meets us: He takes our gifts and makes them His gifts as well, and then both offer this perfect gifts to our Father in heaven.

God, the Father is a wonderful provider. The food He gives us is a special kind. It is His very being in the person of His son, Jesus Christ. It not only nourishes us, but unites us to God and to one another.

It is through this meeting with God every day that we are strengthened as member of His Mystical Body: we are lifted up form our ordinary life and transformed into a dynamic being. Our dynamism must express itself. New students will find - as have students of old - our dynamism express itself in the form of being interested in others, in concern for others, in consideration of them, and in friendship, and in the highest form of love - sharing God's love for us with all others;

Our new encounters should be a source of great happiness to all of us.
