“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!

“I’m French; what does that mean? It means having learned a fable of La Fontaine.”

Charles PÉGUY (1873-1914)
Writer, Poet

“At any given window looking out on ivy and an old tree, in the quarter of Saint Sulpice, or at the back of a registry office in Bourges or Blois, or at a window in the house of a notary or doctor in a somber prefecture, or at at a window in a manor house surrounded by hills covered in beech and fern, there is an aristocracy of readers. An aristocracy of men who seek out the great classics, who read them and re-read them, and who cherish them like a magnificent secret and a hidden paradise. For these men La Fontaine will always be one of the French religions. And so, perhaps you too would like to be one of these chosen readers, one of these guardians of a treasure who have but one desire: to share that treasure with the whole world.”

Henri POURRAT (1887–1959)
