“The Three D’s”

This past weekend, an old, wonderful friend from Norfolk, VA forwarded to me an article published a few weeks ago in her daughter’s school paper “The Hoya” at Georgetown University.  Written by the University’s Vice President of Ministry and Mission, Fr. Kevin O’Brien,  it has been on my mind nearly every single day this week.  He talks about the paramount importance of “the three D’s” — depth, distraction, and discernment — against the backdrop of our modern-day culture, a seething seedbed of superficiality.

I hope it strikes, challenges, and resonates with you as much as it did and continues to do so with me.  I look forward to following Fr. O’Brien’s column “As This Jesuit Sees It,” which appears every other Friday.
