932. Discovering new things every day

One day teacher of English B said to teacher of English A, “A definite yes. Many teachers are so committed and concerned about their students, and this attitude assists a lot in the kids’ education. I’ve recently found a text that could help you and shed some light. It’s taken from one of the two most important documents of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), which was a large council of the Roman Catholic Church. It says something of committing and dedicating oneself to other people in order to help them. Listen:

‘Indeed, the Lord Jesus, when He prayed to the Father, "that all may be one. . . as we are one" (John 17:21-22) opened up vistas closed to human reason, for He implied a certain likeness between the union of the divine Persons, and the unity of God's sons in truth and charity. This likeness reveals that man, who is the only creature on earth which God willed for itself, cannot fully find himself except through a sincere gift of himself.’

The title of the document is Gaudium et Spes, and the text is on # 24. The title means something like Joy and Hope, in Latin. Something else: we christians believe there are three Persons in God, but there is one God. The Persons are the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.” / Photo from: testeur-voyage com. le groenland la plus grande ile au monde
