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!
“What could be more natural than dying? What was extravagant, was to live.”
Georges-Olivier CHÂTEAUREYNAUD (1947)
Novelist and Short Story Writer
“O my God, I thank you for having given me, through Mary, so excellent a means of sanctification: a lovable chain to hold me and to guide my steps in the active life, a cool shadow to shelter my heart in the contemplative life. I’ll never depart from my treasure; on the contrary, for the rest of my life, I’ll cling to it with faith, ardor, and perseverance. And, at the end of my days, when I can no longer dedicate myself to exterior works, when I can no longer preach, or teach, or even sing, I will still say the rosary. And if I can no longer do that, I will, at the very least, hold it in my hands or before my eyes. Under its diverse forms, it will feed my contemplation perpetually and will be my recreation at all hours, my patience in suffering, my preparation for death.”
Reverend Father CORMIER (1832-1916)
Dominican, Master General
