Salpointe Weekly Peek - February 9, 2024

Happy Friday, Lancers!

In celebration of National World Marriage Day on February 11, we offer this verse from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8: 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. Love never fails. Amen. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us.
