Miss Clack-Walsh & Mrs Barnett
Eloquent: the ability to speak or write fluently, persuasively and appropriately. We are eloquent when we use language to express our ideas or opinions clearly and with conviction. When we choose our words, we should do so carefully so they are kind and compassionate, and don’t hurt others. Eloquence isn’t limited to speaking and writing. We can express ourselves in other ways like music, drama, painting or dance. We should use our creative gifts to say things in a way that is interesting, truthful, memorable and faithful.
Truthful: God wants us to be truthful in all we do. Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life’, so being honest and truthful means we are following in his footsteps and living life the way God wants us to. Being truthful is being faithful to ourselves and to Jesus. We should stand up for the truth.
Year 6 Class Saint
Saint Maximilian Kolbe
Saint Maximilian Kolbe was a Polish Priest during the Second World War and was strongly influenced by his vision of Mary. When World War Two began, he was one of the only Franciscans to stay in the monastery and he opened up a hospital for those who had been injured. He also provided shelter for refugees. He was later arrested and sent to Auschwitz. After two months at the concentration camp, many men were sent to starve to death. Kolbe was not one of them, yet decided to trade places with one of the young man who still had a family at home. After two weeks Kolbe was still alive and was killed by injection. During his suffering he remained calm and prayed daily for the men suffering along side him.
