On Tuesday, Frassati Catholic students participated in “The Art of Living: Community & Culture Day” hosted on campus. The phrase, “the art of living,” comes from Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. In an address to catechists in the year 2000, he said that the New Evangelization is about teaching “the art of living;” teaching young people both directly through instruction and indirectly through culture how to live so as to experience the fullness of human flourishing.
Tuesday's Community & Culture Day allowed Frassati Catholic students to grow together as a school community. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI stressed that the defining characteristic of the human person is our ability to be in relation with other persons—“the art of living” is about growing in that ability to relate well with those around us. The day allowed students time to be with their cities (Pollone, Turin, Florence, and Rome), get to know each other, do fun activities together (team building, sports, dancing), and ultimately, work toward building a school culture where everyone can be themselves and grow in “the art of living.”
