Teaching is the most challenging of all professions, says Argentinean Archbishop

.- During his weekly television program, “Keys for and a Better World,” Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata, Argentina, said “teaching is not only a job or a profession.  It is all this, without a doubt, but it is much more.”

In his comments the archbishop underscored the work of those teachers who “heroically carry out their work as a vocation.”

He also recalled that teachers have “the vocation to educate, and to educate means to bring out a child’s or an adolescent’s potentiality in order to achieve what we want him or her to be:  a good man or woman and, in the case of Catholic education, a good Christian.”

“We all remember some teacher whose memory has profoundly marked our personality,” he said, and Jesus Christ is the “Teacher par excellence.”

“There are 41 instances in the gospels in which Jesus is referred to as Teacher,” he explained.

“What a great patron teachers of this earth have!” the archbishop said, and he asked the “Teacher par excellence to abundantly bless the teachers of Argentina.”
