Brother Aidan's Extracts


(Bishop Miles to Sorin) "I have long wished to have some of the Brothers of St. Joseph in my diocese...I will cheerfully bear their traveling expenses And give the annual pension you demand.

"When parents are able to pay for their children's education I think they ought to do so, leaving those free who are too poor to pay. I am decidedly of the opinion that your excellent institute should no be confined to any one diocese but that it should be spread as widely as possible, convinced that the most beneficial results will follow from it.
