Must Read: Stanley Hauerwas on the Calling to be a Student

Here is the link to the "Letter to Collegebound Christians" by Stanley Hauerwas. All of it is so good that I really think that posting a mere excerpt would be misleading.

The "Letter" reminds me of a few of the sayings of Josemaría Escrivá, stated in the typically exhortative manner of a very different personality:

As a student, you should dedicate yourself to your books with an apostolic spirit, and be convinced in your heart that one hour added to another already make up — even now! — a spiritual sacrifice offered to God and profitable for all mankind, your country and your soul.

Furrow, 522.
