Reflection 201 Previous reflections Resolution
Based on the 1965 Vatican 2 document
Declaration on Christian Education - Nos. 9
One idea from this article:
Catholic schools should show special care for children who are poor
So often, in many parts of the world,
a Catholic school is established in a poor area.
But then, through demographic changes,
the area is no longer poor
and the school is more and more a school for non-poor students
This means that such a school needs to keep on
remembering its original vision,
to keep on giving preference to poorer students
.... not to become a place where poor families feel out of place
Jesus, please help Catholic schools always
"have a preference for the poor"
