Reflections on Catholic Education

There is, I believe, a catechetical crisis in the Church at large, and particularly in New Hampshire. As a recent convert, I hope to do what I can to fight the good fight, and to “give a reason for the hope that is in me,” while at the same time giving attention to that love of the human which is responsible for the broad scope of Catholicism. In the past, I have had the privilege of working with young Christian men and women both within and outside the church. I can also truly say that as I have learned during my undergraduate studies at the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, I have also learned to love the art of teaching. I enjoy being around younger people, and helping them to learn. With so many young people, their true nature lies hidden out of sight, their true purpose concealed by the rubbish of base things, by the tyranny of the mediocre. One of things I look forward most to teaching is the love of the noble and beautiful. At this level of education, I believe that is the first lesson to be taught, since students have to love before they can learn. - Mr. Michael Yost
