Preserving Catholic Identity in Catholic Universities

Read this article about effective Catholic university education from the Catholic News Agency. In it, Cardinal Grocholewski, prefect of the Congregation for Catholic Education, says that “Only the Catholic university that conserves its identity will have a future.”

“What is needed in the modern context of permissibility and relativity, he said, is ‘the Catholic university that defends the truth, the objective truth.'”

Take a moment today to pray for the present and future of Catholic education. Pray that it may flourish in its mission to promote authentic Catholic teaching and educate future leaders about the truth of the Catholic faith, so that Catholics students may come to participate more fully in the evangelization mission of the Church.
