|Children and young people meet Mother Scholastica|
Page 1 of 2
Through the parish missions or catechesis in the schools, from the north to the center to the south of Italy, many children from nursery school through high school have “met” Mother Maria Scholastica through the words of the Pious Disciples and through their teachers. They entered into dialogue with her especially through her smiling image and recounted their impressions in drawings, thoughts, poems, letters and various hand made crafts.
We would like to present some excerpts from this dialogue of the younger generations with Mother Scholastica who, until the end of her long earthly life, retained that simplicity and freshness of the “little ones of the Kingdom”.
Thoughts and letters from children in elementary grades 3-5
Even though I never met her, by seeing her smile I believe that she was a very good person; that she always wanted to help others in difficulty. Her smile radiates much joy, much love, much serenity. She is smiling because she is happy and her happiness comes from the fact that she met Jesus in her life and never left him…” (Alessandro).
This smile reminds me of the smile of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. By looking at her, I see that she is very good, very sweet, and that she saved many persons from the evil of sin. I also feel that she loved all as she loved Jesus. I wish that everyone in the world could be like Sr. Maria Scholastica and I commit myself to become like her” (Immacolata).

Dai notes personali di Madre Scolastica
«Corrispondere sempre generosamente a tutti gli inviti del Maestro Divino e vivere la vita di Lui nel totale abbandono e nel saper sorpassare per amore suo tutte le difficoltà che incontro, offrendo ogni cosa a Lui per amore e per la salvezza delle anime.
Diffondere la pace, imitare il Maestro Divino che sebbene avesse molto da dolersi di quelli che gli stavano attorno per i molti loro difetti, tuttavia non ne parlava mai e cercava sempre di diffondere attorno la sua pace divina.
