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 listened to this song of strength, which was also a song of certitude… This song filled the church with its powerful waves… It seemed as though it were made to flood the universe and to reach even to the stars.”
Marie CARRÉ (1905-1984)
“Out of faith and art, hope and supernatural life, out of an ideal of society modelled on that of heaven, the marvel of Gregorian chant was born. Like the cathedrals that it fills, it was created by the inspiration of saints and nations. It is their faith, their hearts, their supernatural tenderness which vibrate to this day in these sacred melodies. These chants are sacred; do not touch them.”
Dom DELATTE (1848-1937)
Religious of the Order of St. Benedict, 3rd Abbot of St. Pierre de Solesmes, from 1890-1921
