“Teach me Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge” Psalm 119

The Basilian motto is derived from Psalm 119 (originally Psalm 118). In the late nineteenth century, Charles Vincent, a Basilian priest who was one of the founders of what would later become St. Michael’s College, brought the Latin motto to the Congregation of St. Basil:

Our motto is a biblical reminder of our role as a teaching community and the simple, foundational importance of goodness and discipline in our celebration of God.
