We quote the message of encouragement of His Beatitude Daniel, Patriarch of Romania, addressed to all the children and young people during school exams:
Beloved children and young people,
Church and School affirm together the need of your intellectual and spiritual preparation for life in a world in which training means more and more.
We urge all the priests, especially during exams, to assist you by prayer, encouragement and any other useful support.
In order to go through an exam with joy and hope, it must be understood as a chance to be evaluated and a confirmation for the effort of studying and a cultivation of talents, having the hope of cultural enrichment and social promotion.
May the love of the Risen Christ bring your souls peace, joy and much courage!
With paternal love and blessing,
Patriarch of Romania
