For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. Saint John the Apostle

Saint Quote : Saint John Neumann



Since every man of whatever race is endowed with the dignity of a person, he has an inalienable right to an education corresponding to his proper destiny and suited to his native talents, his cultural background, and his ancestral heritage. At the same time, this education should pave the way to brotherly association with other peoples, so that genuine unity and peace on earth may be promoted. For a true education aims at the formation of the human person with respect to the good of those societies of which, as a man, he is a member, and in whose responsibilities, as an adult, he will share. 

-- Saint John Neumann

  2. I am not sure if this is a quotation from one of Saint John Neumann's sermons, or from his writings. I can not always find information as to a quotations origin. However, I did find this website : http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-religion/1314163/posts
    and they credit it as : Declaration on Christian Education, 1, Austin Flannery translation
