MENS SANA IN CORPORE SANO
Since man is soul and body, a complete education requires a proper balance of development between these two essential parts. This balance requires that the body, as well as the mind and spirit, be nurtured. Sports and recreation are crucial aspects of the formation and development of young people. Athletics is a means of using and developing the body that also frees the soul to perform all of its functions better.
Playing sport has become very important today, since it can encourage young people to develop important values such as loyalty, perseverance, friendship, sharing and solidarity.
Athletics teach the student to respect the body as something noble and good since it is a God-given gift and temple of the Holy Spirit. Sports activities, done in common and in a spirit of charity, allow for the development of the qualities necessary for adulthood and true social friendship. Also, participation in disciplined, ordered activity allows the student to learn the importance of rules and regulations in all areas of life.
