"Para los educadores" es el vídeo del Papa para el mes de enero de 2023, con la intención de oración que el Santo Padre confía a la Iglesia católica a través de la Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network, an initiative that is now in its eighth year.
Equally inspiring is the message of Pope Francis to Teachers made public in 2017. Here we share it with all of you. Whether we are believers or not, they are priceless and can help us all.
«The Sun does not go out during the night, it hides from us for a while because it finds us «on the other side», but it does not stop giving its light and its heat. The teacher is like the Sun. Many do not see his constant work, because his sights are on other things, but he does not stop radiating light and heat to the students, although only those who deign to "turn around" will appreciate it. towards the influence of him.
I invite you, teachers, not to lose heart in the face of difficulties and annoyances, in the face of misunderstanding, opposition, inconsideration, indifference, or rejection by your students, their families, and even by the authorities in charge of education. educative administration. Education is the best service that can be provided to society, since it is the basis of all transformation of human progress, both personal and community. This sacrificial service goes unnoticed by many. Probably, you will not be able to see the fruit of your labor when it appears, but I am convinced that a large part of your students will value and be grateful one day for what you have sown now. Never confuse success with efficiency. In life, what is effective is not always successful and vice versa. Be patient, better, hope. Do not forget that the key to any good work is perseverance and being aware of the value of a job well done, regardless of its immediate results. Be strong and brave, have faith in yourself and in what you do. May God bless you and bless your selfless daily work, most of the time hidden, silent and unappreciated, but always effective and valuable» (Pope Francisco).
