Pope Francis spoke to the Association of Catholic School Parents about promoting support, acceptance, and harmony.

In a meeting with the Association of Catholic School Parents, Pope Francis encouraged strong ties between families and schools, according to Vatican Radio

The pope spoke directly to parents in his address, emphasizing the importance of “building bridges” between schools, families, country, and other organizations in order to promote harmony. He said parents have a responsibility to advocate for their children’s education and make sure Catholic schools live up to their values. He added that Catholics must be accepting of everyone and not elitist in selecting education recipients.

“I pray to the Lord,” Francis said, “that a Catholic school does not take for granted the meaning of this adjective!”
