The Suffering of the Young

I am more and more struck by the suffering of young people. Many of them have had more or less unhappy and unstable childhoods. Many have had very precocious sexual experiences which can make later commitment more difficult. We have to be very patient with young people. Their world is almost too existentialist. But if they find someone who is faithful to them they will gradually discover what fidelity means and will be able to commit themselves.
