The cover girl on this Seventeen magazine issue from 1959 looks a lot like Taylor Swift with her sweet eyes and red lips. The cover of illustrates that teen girls have been seeking “the true, the good, and the beautiful” for decades, they just haven’t known where to find “it.” Our secular culture points them to the things of the earth; hair, fashion, boys. The Catholic Church and proper faith formation within parishes and families will help young women find God, Who is the source of all things, true, good, and beautiful.

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things” (Philippians 4:8).
