Today we celebrate the birth of the Venerable Father Père Jacques Sevin, founder and promoter of the Catholic Scouting.
Fr. Sevin had a strong and faithful friendship with Lord Baden-Powell. About this friendship, Lord Baden-Powell will say: "the man who understood and achieved my thought is a French religious man". He used to call him "my dear Sevin".
Venerable Fr. Jacques Sevin, pray for us!
Hoy celebramos el natalicio del Venerable Padre Père Jacques Sevin, fundador y promotor del Escultismo Catolico.
El Padre Sevin tuvo una amistad muy solida y fiel con Lord Baden Powell. De esta amistad Lord Baden-Powell diría: "quien mejor ha comprendido y realizado mi pensamiento es un religioso francés". Él lo llamaba familiarmente "mi querido Sevin".
Venerable Padre Jacques Sevin, rogad por nosotros!
In many countries, the school year is ending but the message rendered here can be applied to any time of year:
The last school semester is coming to an end and final grade reports will be soon announced. Remember that among our students there are some artists who don’t need to learn a lot of mathematics, entrepreneurs who won’t worry much about History or Philosophy, musicians who won’t have the best grades in Chemistry, athletes whose physical abilities will help them in their field.
Do not take away your child’s determination to work hard or his dignity. Tell him that it is okay, that those are only grades, that even so, they are made to work for big things in life; do this and watch your children conquer the world.
Getting good or bad grades does not define our intelligence, it doesn’t have to take away our self-confidence or our dignity."
