“An educator should experience all the stages of Christian perfection in order to know in his subsequent activity how to behave and be able to notice the inclinations of his pupils, and then to influence them with patience, successfully, strongly, and fruitfully. Such educators should be a class of the purest, chosen by God, and saintly persons.” [St. Theophan the Recluse on Responsibilities of an Educator, Turning the Heart to God, xxiii]
