Commitments from the St. Anthony Catholic High School Senior Class of 2021

 

Dear Archbishop Gustavo, 

 

As members of the Senior class at St. Anthony Catholic High School, we are studying Catholic Social Teaching as part of our studies in Theology this Fall Semester.  In this class we are learning about putting our faith into action in addressing the many issues we face in our society at the local, national and international levels. 

 

In addition to the social encyclicals and USCCB documents, your recent pastoral letter, Transformed by Hope, Let us Build Our Tomorrow! was included as a week-long lesson. Wappreciate your keen insights and for raising the realities of the pandemic especially among the various segments of our community who are often be overlooked.  Your words of encouragement are an inspiration as we all get through this time and try to find ways to come together in the unity of Christ’s love. 

 

Brother John Paige, CSC took us through a process of reading the pastoral letter and reflecting on it in a way that asked us to share about our personal situations.  Like everyone else in the world, we have felt a sense of isolation, fear and loss.  Of course, we had been looking forward to the excitement of our last year of high school and all that it entails including enjoying our friendships, participating in various activities, and learning through our relationships with our fellow students, teachers, coaches and administrators.  While some of us have returned to school and others are attending virtually, it is not the same.   

 

In addition, some of us have lost loved ones and have not been able to visit our grandparents or other family members. Many of our parents have lost their jobs and have been making great sacrifices for us to continue being enrolled here and we are grateful to them for all that they provide for us in spite of these hardships. And, as you know, we have not been able to attend Mass or participate in our parish youth groups. 

 

Archbishop, we realize this is a difficult time for everyone and as we learn about Catholic Social Teaching, we wish to join in solidarity as a response to the invitation you extend to us in your letter.  For this reason, we are each making a commitment to take concrete actions to express this with the vulnerable groups you mention and have included our names with our commitments and asking for your blessing and prayers for the fortitude to move forward with them.  We do this with the inspiration of St. Anthony who said, “Actions speak louder than words; let your words teach and your actions speak.”  

 

Since the beginning of this school year, our principal, Dr. Vidaurri, has led us daily in praying the prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe that you composed for this COVID-19 time.  We also pray for your good health and courage as you continue to serve the Church in San Antonio as our shepherd.  May the Lord bless you and keep you always and thank you for your leadership!
