In the November 7th issue of America there was an interview with Robert P. George, a law professor at Princeton University. In the interview, Fr. Kevin Spinale, SJ asked him, “What advice do you have for young adult Catholics maturing spiritually and intellectually?” His answer is worth sharing:
Attend to your spiritual life. Develop a strong interior life, especially when we are making educational choices and anticipating career choices. We have to discipline ourselves to maintain regular prayer….
Perhaps the most important thing for young people to be thinking about is what is God’s plan for their lives; what is God calling them to do? Discerning that vocation is in a certain sense one’s primary job; and if you do not have a strong interior life, you lack the foundation for discernment. Strengthen your spiritual life so you can properly discern God’s will for you in all the dimensions of your life.
Gain God’s assistance in living a life that makes sense–integrated and devoted to things that matter.
I pose the same question to you…What advice do you have for young adult Catholics?
