“What makes a school beautiful is that it is the source of high standards.”
André CHARLIER (1895-1971)
Pedagogue and teacher
“It may be said that teaching is the most modern form of apostolate and is the most important aspect of it. We reflected before making this statement: it is truly the most apostolic work, the most modern form of apostolate. It is the most apostolic: never forget this! This thought is your greatest daily consolation, which gives you strength to undergo all sufferings. Our Lord, Our King, Jesus Christ said to His Apostles: “Go ye and teach.” This is what you are doing. You, therefore, take direct part, and this is not mere talk but true fact, in the mission of the Apostles. “Go ye and teach.” Thus, you unite yourselves with the first Apostles. The greatest possibilities for the apostolate open up before you when you consider the great number of youths whom the school, the meeting place of souls, gathers together.”
PIUS XI (1857-1939)
