The True Teacher: the Word in the Spirit

"In the Catholic system ... the true teacher is the universal spirit, that is, the divine Word, "that enlightens every man coming into the world" (John 1:9), and manifests natural truth; but this Spirit is other than the human spirit and transcends the latter, whereas the modern pedagogy holds that there is no transcendence of Spirit over spirit, or of truth over the intellect or of teacher over pupil."

Iota Unum, ch. 12, para 127.
