STATEMENT 1: At a recent Commencement Mass, LMU’s past President, Fr. Robert Lawton, S.J. said, ”So what is the answer to this deep insecurity we all feel? The answer, I think, is to embrace the adventure of becoming deeply, and fully, ourselves. This is what God is really calling us to. It seems like the riskiest of all journeys, this journey to be oneself. But itâ€™s ultimately the journey that leads us to happiness, that leads us into Godâ€™s dreams for us.”
QUESTION 1: Why do you think Fr. Lawton says the "journey to be oneself" seems the riskiest of all journeys? What risks lie ahead as you embark on your college career, and the "adventure" of discovering and becoming yourself?
