What kind of people will your children become?

What kind of people will your children become?

The father of a family who recently applied wrote the following in answer to an application question:

I desire to raise children who love their souls more than their bodies, who love others’s souls more than their own, who love and fear God and His divinely-appointed authorities, including and especially the generations of wise fathers in the City of God and City of Man who council them from the past. St. Francis will help me toward this end by feeding my children dead languages; feeding them dead men’s stories, philosophy, music, poetry, art, and more; for out of these dead things God brings new life to each generation.
