Education is not a profession but an attitude, a way of being; in order to educate it is necessary to step out of ourselves and be among young people, to accompany them in the stages of their growth and be among them. Teach them to see the beauty and goodness of creation and of man who always retains the Creator’s hallmark.
– Pope Francis
