According to the National Study on Youth & Religion, 63% of US Catholic youth say that they have never experienced the love of Jesus. In addition, 92% of US Catholic youth say the Bible and Church teaching does not impact their daily moral decision-making. Further, 5 out of 6 young people confirmed in our parishes today will no longer be practicing their Catholic faith within 10 years of their Confirmation. Five out of six! Why is this happening? Is this what you want for our youth?
But do not be afraid! We were given a solution and the solution is Jesus. “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6) Nothing in this life will fulfill us except for the love of Jesus. Jesus is captivating! No other name brings healing, joy, fulfillment, and peace. “At the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10)
This is good news! The Gospel is good news. The simplicity of the Gospel is not that we love God, but that God loves us. That He saw us covered in dirt and slime but saw in us a great treasure.That God became man, died for us, rises for us, calls us, and empowers us. “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13)
All we aim to do is to unleash the gospel. The Holy Spirit, who is the primary agent of evangelization, will do the rest. Saint Augustine said “The truth is like a lion; you don’t have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.” St. Michael’s youth ministry, “No Greater Love”, aims to create and execute a Jesus-centered and joy-filled program, “that (Jesus’) joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.” (John 15:11)
