“Dear young people, Jesus loves you, he wants to be your friend, he wants to be the friend of all young people. If you are convinced of this, surely you know to spread the joy of this friendship to all: at home, in the parish, at school, with your friends.”
Pope Francis

WE NEED SAINTS

We need saints without veil or cassock.  We need saints who wear jeans and sneakers.
We need saints who go to the movies, listen to music and hang out with friends.
We need saints who put God in first place, but who let go of their power.
We need saints who have time everyday to pray and who know how to date in purity and chastity,
or who consecrate their chastity.We need modern saints, Saints of the 21st century with a spirituality that is part of our time.
We need saints committed to the poor and the necessary social changes.We need saintswho live in the world and
who are sanctified in the world, who are not afraid to live in the world. We need saints who drink Coke and eat hot dogs,
who wear jeans, who are Internet-savvy, who listen to CDs.We need saints who passionately love the Eucharist and
who are not ashamed to drink a soda or eat pizza on weekends with friends.We need saints who like movies,
the theater, music, dance, sports.We need saints who are social, open, normal, friendly, happy and who are good companions.
We need saints who are in the world and know how to taste the pure and nice things of the world but who aren’t of the world.
~ Unknown Author, quoted by Pope Francis at WYD 2013

      You are that saint!


World Youth Day 2013

“Christ has confidence in young people and entrusts them with the very future of his mission, ‘Go and make disciples.’ Go beyond the confines of what is humanly possible and create a world of brothers and sisters! And young people have confidence in Christ: they are not afraid to risk for him the only life they have, because they know they will not be disappointed.” (Pope Francis WYD 2013).

 

       

"I have neither silver nor gold, but I bring with me the most

precious thing given to me: Jesus Christ!"

~ Pope Francis, WYD 2013

Prayer for young people

Lord, grant that I may always allow myself to be guided by you, always follow your plans and perfectly accomplish your holy will. Grant that in all things, great and small, today and all the days of my life, I may do whatever you require of me. Help me respond to the slightest prompting of your grace so that I may be your trustworthy instrument for your honor. Amen.

-St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
