for Hundred Years of Saint Scholastica's
Dear Mother Mary John and all
hearty congratulations on your Centenary celebration! With you I
thank the Lord for those hundred years in which HE led St.
Scholastica's College through times of sorrow and of joy, of
destruction and reconstruction, of death, re-birth and growth, and in
which HE faithfully sustained our Sisters and their co-workers in
their service to thousands of Filipino children and youth, offering
them an education that would not only afford them academic excellence
but lead them to become mature Christians who are aware of their
responsibility to God and their
fellow people, who know how to love, how to bring joy and peace and
comfort to others - who joyfully and faithfully live our Benedictine
Ora et Labora.
God guide you to a grace-filled courageous commitment to the future,
built on your blessed living past.
rejoice with you and pray that your celebration will turn to a joyful
hymn of praise and thanksgiving sounding into the second century of
SAINT SCHOLASTICA'S COLLEGE.
