So dude, do you have a girlfriend yet?. – by Jack Kuplack, via Ignitum Today
A message from a teen to teens, he nails it! Looking back, I was able to grow and experience a lot of great things by utilizing my singleness in a productive manner, and it’s made my courtship experience all the more precious and wonderful. As the nuns taught me, “Patience is a virtue that builds character.” =)
Spiritual AND Religious. – by Fr. Longenecker
A bit more pointed in tone (ok, a lot more pointed) than I personally would be, but he brings up great points.
“Fifty Shades of Grey.” More Like Fifty Types of Denial.. by Pia de Solenni
I can’t say much about this book series, and I certainly don’t plan on reading it, but I am concerned about the basic premise and themes. I’d be interested in knowing how those who’ve read the books would respond to this article.
Jesus the Bartender – Busted Halo.
Yup. Awesome image of Jesus (but only if you’re 21+!) 🙂
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket – safe, dark, motionless, airless – it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”
-C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
Looking forward to reading this book because of this quote!
