"With us everything should be secondary compared to our concern with children, and their upbringing in the instruction and teaching of the Lord.”
- St. John Chrysostom
A friend of Agia Sophia Academy emailed the above quotation to me, knowing how much I would appreciate it. It is Friday afternoon- we are at the end of a long week. So the quotation is timely for me- a reminder of why we, the staff of ASA, come here every day. May we all have a blessed weekend!
ps. These are a sample of photographs from the blessing of our school. We begin each day, as a community, gathered in the church for morning prayers. We end each day, in our classrooms, gathered around our icon corners for afternoon prayers. And in between, we pray before we eat, we make our cross when we hear a siren from an emergency vehicle, and we venerate the icons as we pass through the narthex.
