Soul Friends:

Today is Saint Patrick's Day. St. Pius X School celebrated this day with a mass.   It is our Soul Friend Day. At mass Father blessed our friendship.    
If you are wondering what is a soul friend, well a soul friend is when an older student and a smaller student are joined together as friends. It is just like family.
We modelled this friendship from the Irish Holy Faith Sister who started our school many years ago.

My soul friend is a very cheeky little girl known as Melenaite. She is a very beautiful and bubbly girl from is in Room 1. I called her Mele for short. She is 6 years old. Today after our Soul Friend mass she gave me this wonderful praying hand that she made. I love it and I know she is praying for me. Thank you my Soul Friend.
Fa’afetai tele lava

Religious Education: Stations of the cross - 8

8th Station: The woman of Jerusalem

Yellow: Simile
Orange: Describing word

I was pushed through the front of the crowd, the crowd was as Enormous as the town and then I was standing there in the crowd, watching as the poor son of god, Jesus Christ was carrying the heavy cross, It was as heavy as a container full of big books, he was struggling , so a man named simon was forced to help,

As I watched there was a group of weeping woman, Then I heard a woman say “You are the man of sorrow” and another say “ You are like a innocent frightened little lamb being lead to slaughter”.

I get pushed to the ground , by these annoyed and Grumpy guards, I fell lots of pain, it was as painful as getting hit with a rock and I cry out, but hey just laugh at me and call me pathetic, As I lay there I could just see Jesus trying to console the group of weeping woman, So I get back up on my knees and beg for forgiveness and I pray to lord.

I say “Dear Lord, Help me to be a faithful and Honest friend. When my friends are going through a hard time or are being made fun of, I want to help them and be a wonderful and kind friend” “Amen”.

I stay there on my knees, praying to the lord, I get kicked and pushed over again many more times, but I  think about the pain, that our lord is suffering, so I stay there for a few more hours, praying to the lord our “I am”.
