I'm an 18 year old young man who has recently returned to the Catholic faith by the grace of Almighty God. This happened about 2 years ago. It wasn't until around the beginning of 2019 that I started to discover tradition. However, it took me a while to adjust, and I had already applied by then. I had doubts about going to college in general before, but these concerns were less about the spiritual dangers, but rather the question of "do I really need to go?". I was shut down by my parents. My mother is in the Novus Ordo and my dad is a lapsed Greek Orthodox. As the end of this summer approached, I had to wake up and smell the coffee.
I quickly realized that this school isn't Catholic. One of the presenters for our freshman orientation talked about the glories of "diversity", going so far as to mention the time he saw two sơdơmites "lovingly" hold hands! :barf:
Another promoted the use of some kind of new age mediation. In all of this, not a mention of Our Lord Jesus Christ! We had a convocation in which a priest called down God's intercession, which gave me some temporary relief. However, I ended up feeling scandalized by all of this and close to despair. I never stopped trusting in God. I go exclusively to the TLM. I say 15 decades of the rosary, which no doubt keeps my mind from absorbing the pollution of the place. There are other things I can mention too. Immodestly dressed women everywhere, a flyer for a sơdơmite club, etc. After about 3 weeks of this clown show, I decided to confront my parents. I told them about the dangers of this place, that it was driving me crazy. I told them I wanted to drop out. Did nothing. They said I had to be "more positive". Just yesterday, I had to read a short story in which degenerate sɛҳuąƖ behavior was being referenced. I think God's allowed all of this to show me that I need to get out.
I have no job, no money. I'm being forced to go to this school by my parents. I don't live on campus. What can I do? Can I bring this up in my next confession? Prayers and advice would be greatly appreciated. I'll pray for all you too.
