Re Catholic schools strive to meet challenges

Rev. Peter Weigand is the President of St. Anselm’s Abbey School in D.C. and a contributor to The Washington Post’s local faith leader network

We Catholic educators believe that all education is a means of finding God and that academic excellence gives a young mind the freedom to pursue God. This tradition goes all the way back to Pope Innocent IV (d.1254) who wrote: “Scripture and science should walk hand in hand with sanctity in the cloister schools, and this twofold light, while it serves to enlighten people, at the same time merits for monks an increase of glory in heaven.”

The Peano Axioms fit well with learning the Lord’s Prayer.  Both can be learned in first grade or even earlier.  The Peano Axioms are even easier than the Lord’s Prayer when rewritten for that purpose.
