Handmade Humanity Logo

In this episode, Austin and Max discuss Simone Weil’s essay, “Reflections on the Right Use of School Studies with a View to the Love of God.” Weil contends that the most valuable lesson school teaches is attention, the soul of prayer. “The quality of the attention counts for much in the quality of the prayer.” This is a short, but rich essay that ties the labor of studies to love for God and love for neighbor.
