Readings for today’s Mass
Several years ago, when the Newman Center was renovated, we added several details to the chapel design featuring Christ the Teacher. There are eight circular medallions set in the chapel floor with related scriptural texts. In the State St. entrance of the chapel, there is a fabric print of Jesus the Teacher on one side, but on the other side, the image is of Jesus the Student. It is a depiction of today's gospel with Joseph and Mary finding Jesus in the temple, learning the Torah from the Jewish elders.
We have those details in the Newman Center to remind us, and anyone who comes thru our doors, that we are here because our neighbor is a major learning center in SE Wisconsin. As the Catholic Parish for students at UWL and WTC, we want you to know that this place is all about you.
Sometimes we think that Jesus was born the great omniscient one, but today's reading suggests that teachers played a role in his young life. He really was like us in all things. He even had to learn from the wise ones.
If you are a teacher, know that you have an important role to play in the lives of many young women and men. If you are a student, take time to let your teachers know how much you need them.
