“Thus it is necessary to pass on something worthwhile to the generations to come, sound rules for behavior, and to point out lofty objectives to which to direct decisively their existence. There is a growing demand for an education that can answer the expectations of youth; an education that is primarily a testimony and, for the Christian educator, a witness of faith.”
- Pope Benedict XVI
