Suggested reading for Talk 3

We suggest the follow reading to further the topic of formation in human virtues:

  • Card. Newman, St. Paul's characteristic gift
  • Card. Newman, On Liberal Education
    The first text is a sermon in which Newman describes St. Paul's holiness as an enhancement of his human gifts through the action of divine grace. The second text is part of the book 'Idea of a University'. It explains the importance of education beyond professional usefulness. The formation of the person as a father, mother, friend, spouse, neighbor, is what is really at stake.
