The Life Of St. Joseph Calasanz
Saints, Martys, & Venerables
Calasanzian Family

By establishing schools for the poor, Calasanz tried to instigate social revolution, in solidarity with the defenders of the oppressed and against those who defended the status quo. He expressed this social preoccupation strongly and frequently. Of course, he used the terms of his time,

"The reformation of Christian society consists in the diligent exercise of the teaching profession. The good education of youth is the most effective remedy for preserving and curing youth from evil. It is, at the same time, the induction and illumination of good. From it depends the peace and tranquility of people, good government, the propagation of the faith, conversion, and preservation from heresies, and, lastly, the reform of Christian society, because it teaches people to live well."
