Educating the whole person

A quote from an interview with Sr Enrica Rosanna, the first woman Under-Secretary to a Vatican Congregation.

You can see the whole interview here.

Jonathon and I both picked up on this statement - an aha moment.

" is really the first step in vocational maturity...What is education? Helping someone constitute himself or herself as a person."

Love that quote. I will pass it on especially with the lately conversations of life after 'graduation' and what education is, how it fits with vocations, and all the rest...

thanks, Leonie. You always post the most interesting things!
