This is more of a teen question. I noticed today how hard it is to be a Catholic in our society. I was with my teammates on a bus today and all the kids talked about was either drugs/alcohol, sex, or money. I know not everyone is like this but at this moment that was the only thing I heard. No one talks about chastity, charity, or faith. Then later on, when I was in the car, the radio was on (not Relevant Radio) and on this station all they could talk about were men who secretly cheat on their wives/girlfriends with other men. The next station was merely gossip about celebrities. It seems that our society is focused on everything that is meaningless and not eternal. It is hard enough to be a faithful/trying Catholic, let alone to change something in the world. I have even been on a protestant church trip and there, people chose to loose their virginity, I am not saying that all Catholic children are innocent, I am just surprised. How do you keep your faith without isolating yourself from the world?
Does anyone else just feel tempted to give up in the middle of the day and go to God or just be away from the world? How do you get through this?
