Week 16 ~ The Quiet
by Admin User - Monday, 15 January 2018, 8:30 AM

“The silence of everyday life is an indispensable condition for living with others. Without the capacity for silence, man is incapable of hearing, loving, and understanding the people around him. Charity is born of silence. It proceeds from a silent heart that is able to hear, to listen, and to welcome. Silence is a condition for otherness and a necessity if one is to understand himself. Without silence, there is neither rest nor serenity nor interior life. Silence is friendship and love, interior harmony and peace. Silence and peace have one and the same heartbeat.” —Robert Cardinal Sarah, Power of Silence, Chapter 1

Despite the busyness from our academic and familial obligations, we all—students, instructors, and parents—must find time for silence, even if it is but a moment.  Let us make it our goal to find some time each day this week for the quiet, for silence.

It is the start of the second semester. Eugapae! (Hurray! in Latin).

As you get back in the swing of things, take some time this week to reflect upon any good study habits that you would like to form or maintain this semester.  Some suggestions might be:

  1. creating and maintaining a daily study schedule
  2. setting time aside to drill memory work every day
  3. writing down questions that you have to ask instructors in Tutor Time

There are many more habits that would be good to form.  If you have any suggestions, please share in the comments to this post.  After you have decided what to work on, share it with your parents so that they can hold you accountable to form or maintain the habit.

Finis est!

It is the final week of classes for the first semester of the 2017–2018 academic year!  If you have an exam this week, strive for excellence.  Finish strong and well.  

Regarding late assignments, instructors will accept late work through January 7, 2018.  No assignments turned in after that date will be graded.  During the first two weeks of the second semester, instructors will finalize the first semester grades.

Finally, second semester classes start up January 8.

May God bless your advent preparations as you await to celebrate the Incarnation of Our Lord!
