This was actually the second most popularly read blog of the year and probably deserves to be ranked higher… but it is just that I didn’t write it. We had a week of guest posts last spring, but this one was so good that I lifted the entire content. Thanks to the wonderful Amy Welborn on giving us insight on the Holy Father and youth ministry.
The money quote: In the end, what the Holy Father calls us to – as young people and as those who care for them – is trust. To trust God’s love and care for us. To trust that Christ is the Son of God and that the Church is His Body. To trust that the source of young people’s – and our – aspirations and energy is the Spirit. To trust the call to follow Christ and listen to Him always, even – or especially – in suffering. To trust, and – as the Holy Father says again and again – to respond. To trust that when we are in Christ, we are really and truly free. You can read the whole post here.
