Church and State in the Modern Age: A Documentary History

the exercises of sport. Undertaken with discretion, the cult of physical fitness is a benefit for youth. But now so much time is devoted to it . . . that no account is taken of the harmonious development of mind and body, of what is due to family life, of the commandment to keep holy the Lord's day. . . . With confidence We expect from practicing Catholic youth that, in the difficult circumstances of obligatory State organization, they will insist unflinchingly on their right to keep Sunday in a Christian manner, that in the cult of physical fitness they will not forget the interests of their immortal souls. . . .

47. We address a particularly hearfelt greeting to Catholic parents. . . . When the attempt is made to desecrate the tabernacle of a child's soul sanctified in baptism by an education that is hostile to Christ; . . . then it is the duty of every professing Christian . . . to keep his conscience clear of any culpable cooperation in such dreadful work. . . . The formal maintaining of religious instruction, especially when controlled . . . by those who are not competent, in the framework of a school that in other departments systematically and invidiously works against the same religion, can never be a justification for a believing Christian to give his free approval to such a school that aims at destroying religion. . . . Meanwhile do not forget this: from the bond of responsibility established by God that binds you to your children, no earthly power can loose you. No one of those who today are oppressing you in the exercise of your rights in education and pretend to free you from your duty in this matter, will be able to answer for you to the Etemal Judge when He asks you the question: "Where are those I have given you?" May everyone of you be able to answer: "Of them thou hast given me, I have not lost anyone."
