Real Friendship

authentically cultivating real communities

“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship”
—St. Thomas Aquinas

 

The transmission of the faith—like the sharing of a glass of wine or a loaf of bread—is a communal act. Alcuin’s educational program hinged upon what was later described by Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman as the importance of “personal influence.” Cor ad cor loquitur, Newman tells us, “Heart speaks to heart.” One drinks with friends, just as one should transmit the faith within the context of deep and authentic friendship.
 

Like Alcuin and Newman, our faculty treasures the importance of deep friendship centered on Christ. The truths of the Gospel, like choice wine, are best enjoyed when shared with others. Accordingly, the Alcuin Institute is committed to the cultivation of authentic friendships, so that through these the heart may be open to truth, truth may be pursued, and the will rightly formed … all while having a good time!
