Uncle Eddy's E-mails -- March 1
Bishop and Confessor
(entered heaven this day in 713)
There is an old Latin phrase that can help solve your dilemma: "quid est hoc ad aeternitatem?" "How does it look in the light of eternity?" Spring break with your fraternity brothers at Daytona Beach will certainly have some enjoyable moments (though I don´t think you need your uncle to tell you that it will also submerge you in temptations). But that´s it. Spring break on the missions in Mexico will be uncomfortable, demanding, full of hard work, unpredictable, and probably somewhat dangerous. But every moment of it will be a deposit in the bank of eternity, a deposit that will go on chalking up interest for the rest of your life, for you and for the people you serve. If that observation doesn´t help you decide, maybe a glance at today´s saint will.
