Angelic Doctor, pray for us!

Today is the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, an excellent memorial on which to begin Catholic Schools Week.

"The Catholic school is committed thus to the development of the whole man, since in Christ, the Perfect Man, all human values find their fulfilment and unity. Herein lies the specifically Catholic character of the school. Its duty to cultivate human values in their own legitimate right in accordance with its particular mission to serve all men has its origin in the figure of Christ. He is the One Who ennobles man, gives meaning to human life, and is the Model which the Catholic school offers to its pupils."

This quote from the Congregation for Catholic Education spells out succinctly why Catholic schools offer the best education possible.
