The education of children and young people is such an important task in forming them as free and responsible human beings. It affirms their dignity as an inalienable gift that grows from our original creation as children made in the image and likeness of God. And because education truly forms human beings, it is especially the duty and responsibility of the Church, who is called to serve mankind from the hear of God and in such a way that no other institution can.
- Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis)
