The life giving quality of classical education is born in the culture of life and civilization of love the blood of Christ once made possible and still makes possible today.

Classical education is oriented towards the wisdom of contemplation, and because of this, such education opens students up to the possibility of living a wonderful life. It is precisely that we might live life to the full that the Lord came.

Lectio Divina, as beautifully summarised by Carthusian Prior, Guigo

“We read a text of scripture or serious poetry or religious writing. We meditate to enter deeply into the text’s meaning. In prayer we respond to God in the light of this meaning. In contemplation we rest simply in the presence of God, needing no further words. Reading, as it were, puts the food into the mouth. Meditation chews it and breaks it up. Prayer extracts its flavor. Contemplation is the sweetness itself which gladdens and refreshes.”
