The Theology behind the vision

Theological Reference: 

Holy, holy, holy. The Lord Almighty is holy.  His glory fills the world.  (Isaiah 6:3)

Holy, holy, holy. The Lord Almighty is holy.

The triple repetition of the word holy reminds us of the wonder of the trinity;

  • Holy is he who has created us, and calls us worship him in the beauty of holiness (God the father)
  • Holy is he who has redeemed us, and washed away our sins, and made us by profession holy (God the Son)
  • Holy is he who day by day sanctifies us, and makes us in very deed and truth, so far as we will permit him, holy (God the Holy Spirit)

His glory fills the world. 

If we consider that the whole earth is full of God's glory, then we as part of God’s creation, are a reflection of God's glory.

We are all called to be Holy, all called to be Saints and through our words and actions, live a life that glorifies God.


Biblical Reference and inspiration from the Saints

St Paul’s letter to the Corinthians serves as an inspiration to us and we see it as our mission to help all members of our school family to understand the importance of love in living a holy life that glorifies God.

Striving to live holy lives through

‘love that is patient and kind’ that ‘never gives up’

 13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

We also take inspiration from the life of St Teresa (one of our class saints). We want all members of the school family to recognise that they are called to be a saint in any way they can.

St Teresa showed us that we can all take responsibility for our contribution to our communities.

So that we may ‘Go out into the world, and love the people we meet.’
