There is still more to be said concerning the intuition of Calasanz. He had
the boldness of creating - at an institutional level and not just at a personal one - a type of priesthoon for the future.
Here are the words of Fr. Gonzalez Faus, S.J.,
"The Piarist Fathers (Escolapios) represent in
the Church an original form of being priests...In their experience, the priestly dimension is not separated from its religious
and educational dimensions. In a certain way, the priestly formality is adorned by a richness...The Piarist Family can enter
the 21st century practicing a priestly ministry that reminds us of waht it must have like at the beginning of the Church,
the calebration of the Christian Mysteries."
