Pope reaffirms faith as 'driving force' behind UK Catholic schools
London, England, Sep 17, 2010 / 05:56 am (CNA/EWTN News) .- Catholic identity must be present in every aspect of Catholic schools, but, moreso, the life of faith must be their “driving force,” Benedict XVI told U.K. religious teachers today. Religious are a “powerful reminder” of this in schools, he said, as they form individuals who can “live life to the full” and ensure a safe environment for children.
