Student Advises Peers on Keeping Catholic on Campus

A University of Georgetown student wrote a blog post at St. Peter’s List recently entitled “Four Ways to Save Your Soul on a College Campus.

Louis Cona, who coordinates the Traditional Latin Mass on the Jesuit campus, wrote that “young people with a sincere heart who wish to follow Christ and keep the commands of Holy Mother Church, will find that living a true Catholic lifestyle can be difficult and lonely in a culture that no longer upholds Christendom.”

He said that many college campuses are “breeding grounds for the secular culture” and that sadly, even students at Catholic colleges will face numerous challenges. “So how does one save his soul while at college surrounded by a culture that abuses drugs, sex, contraception, abortion, alcohol and has little faith?”

His four-step answer includes studying liberal arts rather than a major which trains you for a particular job; surround yourself with good people in good Catholic organizations like the Knights of Columbus, Catholic Daughters of America or FOCUS; attend daily Mass and frequent Confession; and pray often and fervently.
