driveway

 


Our address is 320 Middlefield Road--a well traveled Silicon Valley byway.

But in order to enter our beautiful and historic 40 acre campus, visitors must travel down a tree lined driveway.

Many of the trees were planted over a century ago--and the path to St Patrick's offers an opportunity to celebrate the changing seasons.

The driveway photo above was taken by seminarian Justin Liu (Diocese of San Francisco) on the first day of Spring.

 At daybreak on the first day of the week 
the women who had come from Galilee with Jesus 
took the spices they had prepared
and went to the tomb.
They found the stone rolled away from the tomb;
but when they entered,
they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
While they were puzzling over this, behold,
two men in dazzling garments appeared to them.
They were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground. 
They said to them,


“Why do you seek the living one among the dead?
He is not here, but he has been raised.
Remember what he said to you while he was still in Galilee, 
that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners
and be crucified, and rise on the third day.”
And they remembered his words. (Luke 24: 1-8)

 

In the spirit of Holy Thursday, let us remember His example captured in the Ubi Caritas and truly honor His Resurrection today.

Where charity and love are, God is there.
Christ's love has gathered us into one.
Let us rejoice and be pleased in Him.
Let us fear, and let us love the living God.
And may we love each other with a sincere heart.
Where charity and love are, God is there.
As we are gathered into one body,
Beware, lest we be divided in mind.
Let evil impulses stop, let controversy cease,
And may Christ our God be in our midst.
Where charity and love are, God is there.
And may we with the saints also,
See Thy face in glory, O Christ our God:
The joy that is immense and good,
Unto the ages through infinite ages. Amen.
