"Even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God's creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect."

--Pope Francis' Day for Life Greeting
Message from the Coordinator:

#thestruggleisreal
 
One lesson we all start learning in young adulthood is that life is hard. Gone are the days when the most difficult tasks were finishing English homework or picking out clothes to wear. We are now in the era of forging careers, building lasting relationships, bills, bills, and, yes, more bills. With the added pressure of figuring out an identity, it's no wonder a young adult can seem so overwhelmed.
 
In St. John Paul the Great's letter, Salvifici Doloris (The Christian Meaning of Suffering), we are reminded of the reason behind these struggles. He writes that suffering is an indispensable part of life. Through suffering, we discover ourselves. Through pain and sorrow we are faced with true images of who we are and what we are called to do. At the same time, we share in the same redemptive suffering Jesus faced on the cross. By embracing our suffering with Christ, we participate in salvation of the world.
 
We, as young adults, will go through trials, especially in our faith journey. There will be times when we question our place in ministry or if we even "have time for church".
 
These feelings are completely normal, however, these are also the moments we must let the gift of faith shine through! It is guaranteed to us that when we entrust our time, talent, and treasure to the Lord, He will always come through! Let us continue to pray for strength and perseverance as we take on life's struggles.
 
"Working for the Lord doesn't pay much, but the retirement plan is out of this world!"


Yours in Christ,
Malcolm
