"Freedom is the most precious gift that Heaven has bestowed upon men."

-Don Quixote

"Freedom is the energy to adhere to the real, to being. It is adhering to something other than yourself that completes you, makes you grow, builds and fulfills your person."

-Fr. Luigi Giussani

Freedom, which must adhere to the good, the true, and the beautiful present among us, is found only in Christ, the source and summit of our lives. Only in abandoning everything to him can we truly be free, and only in searching for the good, the true, and the beautiful in reality and our encounters with others will we find Christ.

The Biggest Event of My Summer

Well, my second post. Exciting. Today is my older brother's last day here. Tomorrow morning he's returning to TAC (Thomas Aquinas College) for his sophomore year. I'm sad for him to be leaving, but more than that I'm jealous. You see, I got back from the TAC High School summer program a couple of weeks ago, and it was the most amazing experience of my life so far.

I spent two weeks on the beautiful Southern California campus, meeting people from all over the country, discussing Sophocles, Aquinas, and Shakespeare, and strengthening my spiritual life. I cannot possibly say enough about the program, or the college, or the people I met.

In short, I fell in love with the TAC community and way of life, and I have never felt so at home as I did there. For all of you who were there with me, I thank you for helping to make it what it was, and I hope you keep me posted on what's going on in your lives!
