742. A message for teachers




Here is an address of John Paul II to the students, teachers and administrators of Rome’s schools. I re-read it and think it can be encouraging for us, teachers, and teachers of languages. This speech was on February 13, 1999. I hope it’d come in useful. Every sentence is meaningful because it provides an ample vision of our day-after-day work. / Photo from: dailymail co uk. postman

It is the school's task to develop in the students an appropriate knowledge of the world, of cultures and of languages, and at the same time to help them search for the truth with an open mind, in order to form a free and responsible personality. In this journey which nourishes the mind, acceptance of the "mystery" of man cannot be lacking: it appeals to God and makes us discover his action in the world.
