CARDINAL LAW: THE NEW MILLENNIUM NEEDS CATHOLIC EDUCATION

    BOSTON, 1 (NE) "Catholic schools are needed now more than ever before," stated Cardinal Bernard Law, Archbishop of Boston, at the beginning of the celebration of the Week of Catholic Schools in the United States. Acknowledging that there is something wrong in our present culture -something that the mass media news makes evident- the Cardinal stated that "Catholic schools have a unique role in this nation in preparing us for the new millennium."

    Cardinal Law emphasized the level that Catholic schools have reached, but explained that the fundamental difference of this education is "the dimension of faith that is interwoven in the educational process." Recalling a document of the US Episcopate, he stated that "Catholic schools were dedicated to communicating the truth in all its fullness," task that they accomplish in the "context of a community of faith," motivating students and teachers to live the experience of service and dedication to our brethren.

    The new century and new millennium need young men and women "firmly rooted in the enduring truths about God, about the human person, about the family, about human solidarity. This is what Catholic education is about. We really have something to celebrate!" concluded the Archbishop of Boston.
