A Certain Way of Walking Through Life

“Walk as children of the light”
(Ephesians 5:8)

Parents, leaders, and educators, we have a mission, a duty to lead children's souls toward the Light which will be their guide and their happiness. In order to illuminate the way that lies before each one of us, once a week we invite you to discover some of the words of certain wisemen and witnesses, measuring their worth by the words of St. Thomas Aquinas: “Do not consider the one who speaks, but whatever good you hear from him, confide it to your memory.” (from The Sixteen Ways to Acquire the Treasure of Knowledge by St. Thomas). Happy reading!

“We honor and cherish the memory of all those who have made this land a Christian one. We desire to live and die ever faithful to the spirit and civilization of St. Clothilde and St. Genevieve, of St. Louis and of St. Joan of Arc, of St. Vincent de Paul, St. Bernadette, of the Cure of Ars and of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus.”

“We are, and we wish to be, members of this spiritual race, sharing this spiritual blood, this spiritual instinct. We wish to do this so far as God wishes, and even with all of our weaknesses; to be partakers of the grace of these saints of France, partakers of a grace which is incarnated for each of us in the face of our mother during our childhood, in the uprightness of our father, in the memory of our father’s father and our mother’s mother, from whom we have learned humble fidelity to the duties of daily life, confidence in the Heart of Jesus, the recitation of the rosary, and a certain way of walking through life.
These superhuman ideals have for each of us a human face, an inherited tenderness, a hope transmitted here and nowhere else – the mark of a certain landscape, a cemetery next to a church, a cross alongside the road, and the slope of a hill standing out against the sky. The duty of impiety has not yet been promulgated. Should it ever be, the promulgation would have no rights whatsoever.”
