“The Church needs your energies, your enthusiasm, your youthful ideals, in order to make the Gospel of Life penetrate the fabric of society, transforming people’s hearts and the structures of society in order to create a civilization of true justice and love. Now more than ever, in a world that is often without light and without the courage of noble ideals,people need the fresh, vital spirituality of the Gospel.”

United States Conference of Catholic Bishops; St. Pope John Paul II (1920-2005 A.D.), Homily at World Youth Day, Denver, August 15, 1993)

God loves you, the Church needs you…

“The Church needs your momentum, your intuitions, your faith … In the heart of the Church, Mary shines forth. She is the supreme model for a youthful Church that seeks to follow Christ with enthusiasm and docility. While still very young, she accepted the message of the angel, yet she was not afraid to ask questions (cf. Lk 1:34). With open heart and soul, she replied, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord” (Lk 1:38).
