The School of Christ is the School of Charity
Today is the feast of St. Robert Bellarmine who directs us toward this same purpose: "The school of Christ is the school of charity. On the last day, when the great general examination takes place, there will be no question at all on the text of Aristotle, the aphorisms of Hippocrates, or the paragraphs of Justinian. Charity will be the whole syllabus. . . . If you are wise, then know that you have been created for the glory of God and your own eternal salvation. This is your goal: this is the center of your life; this the treasure of your heart."
