Classical Education

A friend sent me this homily – apparently preached yesterday (I guess they keep the poinsettias out till they die!?). This is an excellent explanation of the benefits of and need for classical education in our Catholic schools. As my friend said, “There is something in this video for everyone”. Please take 20 minutes to watch and/or listen:

Good work to Fr. Dufner and godspeed to his parish school!

    Dear Fr. Jerabek,
    I do not know who your friend is; but truly he or she was more than a friend, rather a much needed angel. I have never heard a priest with a more direct, positive message from the pulpit for our children, and our faith community, with regards to the Catholic schools, which I feel have slid into the ways of teaching the secular schools do, as exemplified by Fr. Dufner’s example when he spoke of the history lesson learned from women working in the textile mills.
    I cannot thank you enough for sharing this gift from you friend. I shall certainly pass it on to the best of my ability.

    Yours in Christ,
    Judy Silhan

    Father Jerabek, this video is incredible. I sent it to many friends and my large family. I have been involved every Friday at St. Pat’s here in Portsmouth for these past 27 years and so wish this vision of Fr. Dufner could reign here, but alas. Perhaps in the new St. Patrick’s Academy slated to start next semester things will be different.
    Funny thing, I received your email last night after I drove past the small park right by the Memorial Bridge and thought of you and wondered how you were doing. Lots of snow up this way- lots.
