The foundation of Saint John – a social commitment?

"... it was his [Dehon’s] opinion that a college offered the fundamental solution to all the social problems, so fundamental in fact that it would reach the very cause of the evil conditions. From the beginning, his college endeavored to provide the future leaders in social action, the intellectuals and businessmen, with an education calculated to induce them to apply spontaneously in their daily lives the principles of Christian justice and charity." (Dorresteijn, Leo John Dehon, p. 80)
