I especially thank the President, Prof. Mark Philpot, and those who have been engaged in organizing this meeting, for their invitation gives me the opportunity to reaffirm the special concern of the Holy See for education, together with appreciation for the tough and often hidden work of so many persons dedicated to the mission of education, who promote Christian principles in the difficult area of schools and the training of the new generations. .......
