Wow! It has been a crazy week and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down! For everybody, biology majors and everyone else, the month of October is jam packed with exams, due dates, and deadlines. For me, I just took another microbiology exam this past week and am finishing up the preparations for my seminar next week. Looking forward to sharing more about that next week!
St. Josemaria puts myself and my fellow students in our place … again!
“You must study… but that is not enough. What do those who kill themselves working to feed their self-esteem achieve? Or those who have nothing else in mind but assuring peace of mind for a few years ahead? One has to study… to gain the world and conquer it for God. Then we can raise the level of our efforts: we can try to turn the work we do into an encounter with the Lord and the foundation to support those who will follow our way in the future. In this way, study will become prayer.”
St. Josemaria Escriva
My name is Matt Stewart and I’m a chemistry student. I’m excited to be a student blogger representing the sciences at Franciscan University of Steubenville for this next academic year. Franciscan has provided some pretty incredible opportunities for me the past couple years. I am excited to see what God does with our work, and I look forward to sharing more and keeping you updated.
