Task of Catholic schools is to show how Christ is present today and in history

.- The prefect of the Congregation for Catholic Education, Cardinal Zenon Grocholewski, said in a homily this week that the task of Catholic schools is “to show Christ present in our times and in our history.”

The L’Osservatore Romano reported that the cardinal made his statements during a Mass for the congress on “Catholic Schools in the European Public Sphere,” which took place in Rome and was promoted by the Council of the Bishops’ Conferences of Europe.

Cardinal Grocholewski also pointed out that “our Catholic scholastic institutions today are often the only places where many hear about Christ, where they can find him in culture, art, literature, and see what the Gospel has produced in Europe.”

For this reason, “schools and Catholic education should speak of Christ” to young people who are experiencing difficult moments, “so that they can feel the need to encounter Him.”
