Time To Take a Break With the Lord

I am sure you are already enjoying your summer
break. We need to take a break from work or from
whatever things that give us stress from time to
time. Summer is a good time to relax at the beach,
to go on camping trips or visit some relatives.
Whatever it is, make sure that you don't take a
break from your spiritual life. Come back rejuve-
nated! Have a happy summer!

School News
Our windows tell a story—the spread of the Gospel
throughout the world. TENTH WINDOW—Saint
Stephen assumed the iron crown of Hungary in 997.
The sword and pennant proclaim his royal lineage, but
he preferred the cross as his banner. He brought many
missionaries into his country and spent most of his pat-
rimony building churches, for which reason he was
rightly called the Apostle of Hungry. Ludwig van Beetho-
ven commemorated him by composing the King Stephen
Overture. His feast day is August 16.

dow.)
