"600,000 religious around the world give their lives every day for others. Today we talk about those who dissent, not about those who agree. There is talk of the sins of the Church but not of those who do an impressive work, such as the 13,000 Spanish missionaries around the world". This is what the Archbishop of Pamplona, Mons. Francisco Pérez, said at the University of Navarra during the closing of the XV Course of update of the high school Superior of Religious Sciences.

In his words, the Monsignor encouraged the participants to continue their work as educators and explained to them that it is very important not to lose hope: "In the face of difficulties we must wake up, they are an opportunity to get us to think".

The course, held from August 29 to 31, was attended by a hundred people from the 17 autonomous communities. The profile of the attendees was very varied: teachers, pharmacists, researchers, civil servants, businessmen, lawyers, priests, engineers, retired people and housewives.

The Archbishop of Pamplona addressed them expressly to remind them that "no one educates more than the one who loves" and he conveyed to them the words of Pope Francis: "The Gospel cannot be proclaimed if it is not done with joy".
