Reasons for Hope

By a Sedes Sapientiae School parent

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: the voice of an ignorant generation” heads an opinion piece on Fox News’ website yesterday. The article notes: “The majority of American Millennials identify as socialist, according to surveys by both Reason-Rupe and the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation. That’s the bad news. The good news is that just 32 percent of Millennials can define socialism….Two-thirds of Millennials cannot identify Auschwitz, and 22 percent have never heard of the Holocaust, twice the percentage of American adults on average.”
 
So, my 7th grader at Sedes Sapientiae School is already ahead of the curve!
 
The times we live in feel biblical. Like His chosen people, God is preparing us and caring for us. His Holy Spirit is at work moving us to find new, faithful, authentic sources of education and worship. Our strength comes from Him and from our pared down and purified community. With this strength our children will enter into a broken and needy world. 

Jesus called us to be light for the world. There is a glow coming from Boonton.
