BASED ON STRENNA 2022


THE 7 MAIN POINTS FROM THE STRENNA

1. Nothing through constraint. Freedom is God’s gift: → and it is because of this that our system of education appeals to other resources “instead of constraint.”

2. God’s presence in the human heart: → through which we recognize the “love and the desire for God, which everyone has in the depths of his being.”

3. Life in God: → which “brings together educators and youngsters in one unified experience of life.”

4. A kind and friendly way of dealing with people: → which leads to living with our youngsters “in a family experience of trust and dialogue.”

5. Unconditional and unrestrained love: → which makes it possible in our family that by “Imitating God’s patience, we encounter the young at their present stage of freedom.”

6. With the need for a spiritual guide: → hence “We then accompany them, so that they may develop solid convictions.”

7. Ultimately doing “All through love”: → so that they “gradually assume the responsibility for the delicate process of their growth as human beings and as men of faith.”
