Look to this literary great for some wise advice.

It’s not a surprise that Catholic author J.R.R. Tolkien is as popular today as he was when his first major works were published in 1937. His wisdom, faith, and language skills are both inspiring and educational. In fact, his reflections should accompany any young adult stepping out into the world today — especially one full of such uncertainty and stress.

So to accompany the graduates in your life on their exciting adventures ahead, look to these wise words of the English writer. Let him bring reassurance, common sense, and an appreciation of the unknown into their future, while also reminding them that God is always by their side.
