In the last couple weeks, we’ve been faced with the reality that there is a lot we have been taking for granted. From attending class, to seeing friends, to even attending mass, a lot has been taken away from us. I doubt any of us foresaw just how much we would be asked to give up this Lent. A lot of it has been out of our control. We’ve lost our daily routines, the final classes of our school year, and f...

Anyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I am not a morning person.

I cannot count the number of times I’ve had the great intention of waking up early the next morning, and even set an alarm clock, only to casually switch the alarm off in the morning and go back to sleep, profoundly unmoved by the duty that awaited me that day. Well aware of my shortcomings in arising from my comfortable bed, I once asked a housemate...

Here are some tips for Catholics starting University or College that are tested and tried by myself and my army of Catholic friends.
