It was amazing to see a gathering of more than 200 young people at our recent Verbum Dei youth event. They had come together for a Song forum entitled “Catalyst, an Agent of Change” organized by the Verbum Dei Missionary Family.
It was a day of songs, dance, a skit and a Japanese origami lesson. In each performance there was a short introduction related to the realities that the young people face today.
The event aimed to instill in the young people that they have a place in the world - that they can each contribute in their own little way to make this world a better place. And that in their journey of life, God will always be there guiding them every step of the way.
There was also time for Eucharistic exposition, to help introduce the participants into prayer.
Let us also pray for all these young people that they can really be catalysts, agents of change, in the
world of today!
