Finding wealth in the waste! : Trinity Central School
Gold is mined out from beneath the coarse and rough earth. Great sculptures are chiselled out of rugged marble blocks. A thing considered as waste and useless may turn out to be something valuable and precious, provided a creative mind looks at it and a skillful hand shapes it. That is what happened in the ‘Trinitorium’ today as all the Trinitarians rolled up their sleeves to transform waste into wealth. The ground initially was strewn with all sorts of garbage but gradually the waste began to take different forms; vibrant in colour, creative in its making and useful in their own ways. Welcome to behold the spectacle! The ‘waste’ once and ‘wealth’ now welcomes you with glowing smile to behold the work of our hands.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
