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!
“My friend of old, do not be sad. The road ahead of us may still be very beautiful. Great days may yet dawn. In any case, the road is there, come what may, and will finish by slipping into sweet eternity.”
Georges BERNANOS (1888-1948)
“If, in some classroom, he has never wept with Achilles over the dead body of Patrocles, or taken Antigone’s hand as she descended into the tomb; if he has never contemplated the immensity of the ocean from Ulysses’ raft, or assisted old Oedipus at the entrance of the grove at Colonus, such a student has wasted his time.”
Father FESTUGIÈRE (1898-1982)
