Easter Blessings from Benedictine High School!
Benedictine Hallmark ~ Love of God and Neighbor
“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And the second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22: 37-40)
The love of God and neighbor is at the heart of the Gospel and at the heart of Saint Benedict’s Rule. Every aspect of Saint Benedict’s teaching, whether spiritual or practical, stems from it and aims towards it. Accordingly, every aspect of life in a Benedictine school should stem from and aim towards the love of God and neighbor. It should animate the entire program of the school and direct every encounter between students and faculty, among all the various constituencies of the school community and in all the ways in which the school relates to the wider community. ~ Author Fr. Gregory Mohrman, O.S.B.
