To think that what one says or does is better than what others say or do 2. To always to want to get your own way 3.

Some highlights of the big conference at Fordham earlier this week, on 20-somethings and the Church, courtesy CNS: Catholic young adults aren’t as attached to the church as their counterparts from the 1940s and 1950s, but they are hardly a lost generation and have not abandoned the faith, according to speakers at a two-day forum at Jesuit-run Fordham University. More than 700 people registered for the Jan. 28-29 conference titled “Lost? Twenty-somethings in the Church,” which was co-sponsored by the… Read more

But just a… Read more
