Should You Date While Discerning?

 by Bobby Angel No, probably not.   It’s one of the toughest struggles, especially for a young person seeking to do the will of God in their lives, to adequately discern a religious vocation while desiring to date.  I tried to walk that line in college and failed more than a few times, hurting several friends in the process.  …

Love & Responsibility Talk in NYC
