"School children and students who love God should never say: 'For my part I like mathematics'; 'I like French'; 'I like Greek,' They should learn to like all these subjects, because all of them develop that faculty of attention which, directed towards God, is the very substance of prayer. ... So it comes about that, paradoxical as it may seem, a Latin prose or a geometry problem, even though they are done wrong, may be of great service one day, provided we devote the right kind of effort to them. Should the occasion arise, they can one day make us better able to give someone in affliction exactly the help required to save him, at the supreme moment of his need."
– Simone Weil, Reflections on the right use of school studies with a view toward the love of God

Stop by the office today & pick up this month's Cultura! and listen to this week's Monday Meal on The Oaks app.
