I just wanted to throw this onto everyone’s radar because it seems like a very applicable topic (especially for graduating seniors!). I haven’t gotten a chance to listen to it yet, but there was a Catholic Answers Live! hour last week entitled “How to Stay Catholic in College” that definitely piqued my interest. I know from personal experience that when people are thrown into a college setting, they tend to get caught up in the “freedom” Cathy mentioned in her previous post and forget about the freedom that comes from God.
Anyway, you all can listen to it FOR FREE off of the catholic.com website at this link… OR, better yet, if you have an iPod – which I’m pretty sure most of you do – you can subscribe to the Catholic Answers Live! podcast.

When I was an atheist, I thought I was more liberated than the people who believed in God. After all, I didn’t have all their bizarre rules and regulations to bog me down. Now I realize that those “rules” that seemed so bizarre are actually a tool set, a key to unlock the shackles of sin, a compass and chart to navigate the troubled waters we all find ourselves in. Now I realize not only where that inscription came from, but what it means. To know God is to know the truth. And without the truth, we can never be free.

An observant student pointed out to us that a lot of us left out the “Amen” at the end of the Our Father while we were saying the rosary on retreat. This article is a really great explanation about how that might have come about due to our habit of not saying “Amen” when we say the Lord’s Prayer during Mass. However, we SHOULD be saying “Amen” whenever we say any prayer, whether personal or formal, even the ones said in succession when we pray the rosary. It’s a good thing to keep in mind and put into practice.
