When speaking about the “beautiful profession" of teaching, Pope Francis said, "I encourage you to renew your passion for humanity — you cannot teach without passion! — in the process of formation, and to be witnesses of life and hope. Never, never close a door, open all of them wide, in order for the students to have hope ("Address to UCIIM," 3/14/15). Lay ministers working in a variety of religious education contexts work to promote within their students a sense of identity, reverence, and responsibility for life and the sacred.
