For everyone else...

Just a couple of days ago there was a particular person's name doing the rounds in some parts of the US.  It was of a professor of religion at Cleaveland. He taught at St Ignatius High School and his name was Jim Skerl.  To know more of him watch the video below... or read this article (from The Deacon's Bench)
Besides the many initiatives he undertook and lead young people to join in, what struck me most was his quote on the perspective of education he offered:
An Ignatius education does not exist to make you better than everyone else. It exists to make you better FOR everyone else.
I suppose that idea can be apt for any formation setting as well ... formation is not be make one better than everyone else but FOR everyone else!
