To Know God Is
Religious instruction is the hallmark of
Catholic education, thus students view their
daily religion classes as the most important.
Through the pages of the Bible, freshmen ob-
serve God's love and noble design for man,
while sophomores see a more perfect fulfillment
of that love through a study of the Mass and
sacraments. Juniors meet St. Thomas' analysis
of the virtues and Seniors seek practical answers
to the challenge of young Catholic adulthood.
In October, Fr. Charles O'Neill addressed all students
concerning the importance of vocations.
Joyce Ford, Diane DeLorenzo, and Gail Lofstom inspect the religious
articles which Fr. Burroughs has on display for his classes.

"Knowledge of the whole truth is the primary
aim of education, but we cannot know the
whole truth unless we also know revealed
Education is lacking if it relies on human un-
derstanding alone. Complete education must
include knowledge gained from both divine and
human authority. Therefore, Mercians revere
their school motto: "Virtus et Scientiaf' be-
cause it embodies this Christian concept.
Fundamental principles of virtuous living are
inculcated through daily religious instruction
and this Christian spirit permeates all phases of
study. The experience and culture of other
generations, intricacies of math, scientific ex-
perimentation, and the artof expression provide
a liberal education, while the practical arts of
home living and business world equip a student
in fruitful vocational training.
Education which unites virtue to knowledge
is true education, for according to His Holi-
ness Pope Pius XI such an education exists
". . . to elevate, regulate, and perfect Qhuman
lifej, in accordance with the example and teach-
ing of Christ."
