We Stand Under the Angels: True Education

True education begins in the fear of the Lord and ends in wisdom. Amongst other things, the fear of the Lord is the reminder that He is God and we are not. God knows all things and we do not. God is wise, virtuous, and full of joy and too often we are not. This [Read More…]

A Pillar in the Heart of Our School: Saint Elizabeth, New Martyr . . What if you lose?

She was intelligent, capable, beautiful and born into a position to use all her great gifts. She was murdered by being thrown into a mine shaft, her body damaged by grenades, and left to die of exposure. It was a long way down to the bottom of that shaft for a princess. She got there [Read More…]

A Pillar in the Heart of Our School: Saint Lucy- the Genius of Simplicity

  She was very young, not at all powerful, but she refused to bend to power and so became very powerful. She was blinded by a tyrant’s strengthless presumption. Lucy was strong, because she was humble. No Christian would ever side with the proud over the humble, because our Lord showed us that the proud [Read More…]

A Pillar in the Heart of Our School: Saint Anne- Mother Matters

We need more mothers in education for one simple reason: Education is for people and not programs. In the next few weeks, millions of students will go to college and school in the United States of America.

You Can Justify Almost Anything if You Like the Person

Brunhilde Pomsel worked for a man who was very nice in the office. If you heard him speak, however, he would act as if he were angry and bad. You had to know him to see what a clean, upstanding man he really was. There were two of him: the man with the manicured hands [Read More…]

A Good Discussion

Discussions: You have to have them, but you ought to do them well and not badly. Sadly, almost nobody teaches you how to do it and one bad discussion class at some point in school can make you avoid them for the rest of your natural life. You know the bad discussion well: one person talks [Read More…]

Idea: Don’t Waste Money on Politics Just Now: Rebuild the Magnaura

You could give money to one of our Presidential candidates or you could cut to the root cause of this dispiriting election and begin to educate the next generation to do better. If you don’t like the Boomer candidates we have, let’s stop educating our children and young adults as we educated the Boomers. This [Read More…]

True Education: Begins with Humility

“We’re number one!” That can either be a celebration or a boast. It can also be a lie. If it is hard to be a good loser, then it is (at least) as hard to be a good winner. The classless taunting and flaunting now common in sports is a bad cultural sign. The humble [Read More…]

God, Patriotism, and Books in School

Be of good cheer! If you are discouraged about the Presidential choices we have today, imagine picking from these candidates: a former Secretary of State who became the worst President in American history, a rogue Republican who knew little or nothing about the government and had an unfit temperament for the office, while a Know [Read More…]

Listening to Lucy: The Short Way to God

The know-nothing and the pseudo-intellectual are the same personality type in different zip codes. The know-nothing cannot be taught, because even the possibility he might be wrong enrages him. The pseudo-intellectual cannot be taught, because he already knows the truth and has the credentials to prove it. This is even true of the pseudo-Socratic personality [Read More…]
