A Message to Our Youth, From Pope Francis:

“Dear young people, we didn’t come into this work to “vegetate”, to take it easy, to make our lives a comfortable sofa to fall asleep on. No, we came for another reason: to leave a mark. It is very sad to pass through life without leaving a mark.”

“The times we live in do not call for young “couch potatoes”, but for young people with shoes, or better, boots laced. The times we live in require only active players on the field, and there is no room for those who sit on the bench.”

World Youth Day, Prayer Vigil, 30 July 2016

Indeed, our world needs people who come in contact with life, with people’s lives, and respond by taking action. The mission of a youth program is to respond to this challenge of Pope Francis and the invitation of Jesus to leave a mark on life, and history with our hands and feet – a mark that builds bridges and brings light.
