SPRUCE GROVE — Sometimes young people want to compartmentalize Jesus, allowing him into their lives only when it's convenient for them.
"Hey, God, you're really good with the God stuff, and you made me feel good at a retreat day, and I enjoy you on Christmas and Easter," said Bob Rice, associate professor of catechetics at the Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio.
"I'll let you into my life on Sunday morning, but don't interfere with my Monday. Don't tell me how to live my life or have relationships or how I should be as a student."
