Parker Palmer said, “It is possible to wield a knife with enough skill or knowledge to kill someone, or it is possible to wield a knife with enough skill or knowledge to heal someone. The difference is the heart that animates the hand. The heart not only animates our hands, but the heart animates all that we do. In a world overflowing with information and knowledge, how do we discern the wisdom needed to align our lives with God’s call? St. Michael’s strives to be a school for the heart that will help us – no matter what our age — to learn to animate our lives in service to God in Christ.
