OPINION: Homework = Holy?

The university expresses that they have a commitment to educating the hands, heart and mind to form the whole person; but if the hands and mind are fully wrapped in academics, then there will be less time and space for faith formation. For instance, I have had to miss Mass multiple times because of assignments and projects. Consequently, I have noticed a decline in the strength of my faith. In this case, and many others, faith is placed after academics. This stunts the growth of a student’s faith while growing a student’s knowledge.
