What the Old Seal of the Catholic University of America Used to Look Like

One word: awesome.
Here is a fine mission statement for any Catholic univeristy:
"Christian education will always have to remind the student today of his privileged position and of his resultant duty to live in the world but not in the way of the world, according to the above mentioned prayer of Jesus for His disciples: 'I am not asking that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them clear of what is evil.  They do not belong to the world, as I, too, do not belong to the world' (Jn. 17, 15-16).  And the Church adopts this prayer as its own."
-Ecclesiam Suam, 1964.
