`Love pupils', teachers are warned

AFrom John O'Sullivan RCHBISHOP MURPHY of Cardiff has warned Catholic teachers that, unless

they love their pupils, they will make bad teachers. He was preaching on Friday at St. David's Cathedral, during

Pontifical High Mass to mark the Feast of the Sacred Heart.

"You are working with the most precious material on earth", he told members of the Catholic Teachers' Association. "The Minister of &fixation will insist on sufficient space and as much light as possible for the education of the children. But they may be cramped and starved for the want of love.

"I appeal to Catholic teachers to love their pupils not only in school, but also after they have left school. Most children look forward to their first job as a priest looks forward to his first parish.

"They go into a factory or an office, however, to earn a living, and they soon find that the people there waste time, steal, and pass on lurid stories or immoral literature.

"As a result, something precious in these children is smashed in the first few weeks. We face the problem that education cannot be allowed to stop at the age of 15."

In a reference to the election of Pope Paul VI. Archbishop Murphy said that Catholics should be as grateful for the infallible guidance of the lloly Father as for the benefits of a Catholic education.
