In the coat of arms of the Basilian Fathers appears a quotation from one of the Psalms: “Teach me goodness, discipline and knowledge. (Psalm 118.66). I would like to say a few things about “discipline” and point out why it is stressed in Basilian schools. Discipline is an interesting word and a still more interesting thing. As you know, the word is derived from the Latin “discere” meaning “to learn”. The disciple is one who learns from a teacher. “Discipline” is that virtue in the teacher and that virtue in the student which enables the teacher to teach and the student to learn. Without it, there is no teaching nor learning.
