Argentinean bishop: “Catholic schools should be a place of hope”

.- Bishop Oscar Domingo Sarlinga of Zarate-Campana said this week “Catholic schools should always be a place of hope” in which all students and faculty should feel they are part of God’s family in order to thus carry out the different objectives of education.

In his homily for a Mass celebrating the 23rd anniversary of the St. Thomas Aquinas School in Campana, the bishop underscored the existing relationship between education and the Church throughout history.

“There is a word that today is not very common: educe, which means to elicit, to draw out what is already in another, what I have to do is bring to light their moral values.  I always think that in a child, in a young person there are essential values such as loyalty, respect.  All of this needs to be educed, to be drawn out.  This is the work of education,” Bishop Sarlinga said.

At the end of the Eucharist, Bishop Sarlinga, accompanied by school officials, parents and students, blessed the new library and science facilities of the school.
