“Do not let your youth be stolen from you. Do not allow anyone to slow and obscure the light that Christ puts in your face and in your heart. Be weavers of relationships signed by trust, by sharing, by openness even to ends of the world.”
Pope Francis

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

Small gestures of love, of tenderness, of care, make people feel that the Lord is with us. This is how the door of mercy opens.

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)
