Go hang out in the adoration chapel, just because. You won't regret it and you may never have the opportunity or time for most of these (and other) college experiences. 14 – Homesickness is real. Almost everybody has it to some degree, even those that come from unhealthy environments back home. For new students, it is an unfamiliar and difficult transition and you will have to learn a new town (unless you don't leave ...http://www.aggiecatholicblog.org/2015/08/10-things-i-wish-i-knew-my-freshman-year/
How I Met the Jesuits GOOGLING GOD - July 31, 2015 ... my life would be quite different. You see, when I met the Jesuits, I was likely on my way out of the Catholic Church.

Not Important Enough for American Loons ... ABBEY ROADS - May 18, 2015 ... new messages from Mary supposedly dictated to a locutionist under his direction. I was trying to find out who the unnamed mystic is, apparently she is a cloistered nun. The messages strike me as too political and a bit pro-American. For me I find nothing edifying in them - much like Medjugorje. Obviously it isn't meant to be - for me. That said, I came across an American theologian, Ronald L.
