Stratford Caldecott, R.I.P.

I commend to your prayers the happy repose of the soul of Professor Stratford Caldecott. In the fall of 2013, I had the honor of spending a day with him in Oxford England and discussing the development of classical education. What a gift and privilege! May he rest in peace. Strat was a man of many accomplishments and his books have had a profound effect on me and my understanding of the relationship of the Catholic faith and education. I commend to your reading the entry from Patheos because it gives you an insight into a man of profound faith.
