“Be kind and tender; maintain honor and reverence; treating each other with respect.” 
Second counsel

Imagine you are walking down the hallways of St. Ursula Academy and every person you pass looks at you, smiles and says “Hi” or “Good Morning” to you.

Imagine you are the teacher or presenter in the classroom and every student is watching and listening to you.

Imagine you are a guest in the building and every person you pass says “Welcome” or “Thanks for coming.”

Imagine you have your hands/arms full of bags or packages and someone comes up to you and says, “May I help you?”

Imagine you see someone who is sitting alone in the Dining Commons and you approach her and say, “Want to sit with us?” or “Could I sit with you?”

Imagine you see an adult approaching the same doorway as you and you hold the door open for her/him.

Imagine you seem or look troubled and someone comes over to you and says, “Is there anything I can do for you?”

Imagine that everyone sees God in everyone else.  Imagine how different the world would be.

Imagine “kindness” – “tenderness” – “honor” – “reverence” – “respect.”

What a beautiful place to live in, to work in, to love in—to be loved.
