Our virtue for December is Charity. In religion class, we are discussing what it means to give of ourselves to others and are reflecting on how Jesus treated others equally and we should strive to do the same. It is important we remember that God lives within everyone and created us in His image and likeness. We must strive to love one another and treat people as we would like to be treated.
