A MESSAGE OF HOPE (By: Felistas Grade 12)
Our Visit to Poland, was very enriching having met with many other young people from Different walks of life, colour, and Race even a few different religious affiliations. The Theme for the world youth Day Was Blessed are the Merciful; this echoed throughout Poland as Pilgrims walked in Various Places for Catechesis and many other visits to the Shrines of Mercy. Moreover, one of the most important thing that touched my life was the welcoming gesture that we received from the people of Poland. I was touched also by the spirituality and faith of many a youth though the world paints us to be shunning away from God to doing other sorts of things.
Among the many things I experienced I would briefly share with you the Pope’s Message to the Youths on the Closure of the World Youth day; the Reflection was drawn from the Story of the short Man in Luke 19, the Pope pointed out that; “Zacchaeus was thus a wealthy collaborator of the hated Roman occupiers, someone who exploited his own people, someone who, because of his ill repute, could not even approach the Master. His encounter with Jesus changed his life, just as it has changed, and can daily still change, each of our lives. But Zacchaeus had to face a number of obstacles in order to meet Jesus. At least three of these can also say something to us.
The first thing the pope spoke of is his smallness of stature. Zacchaeus couldn’t see the Master because he was little. Even today we can risk not getting close to Jesus because we don’t feel big enough, because we don’t think ourselves worthy. This is a great temptation; it has to do not only with self-esteem, but with faith itself. At times in our lives, we aim lower rather than higher. At those times, it is good to realize that God remains faithful, even obstinate, in his love for us. The fact is, he loves us even more than we love ourselves. He believes in us even more than we believe in ourselves. He is always “cheering us on”; he is our biggest fan. He is there for us, waiting with patience and hope, even when we turn in on ourselves and brood over our troubles and past injuries. Continue reading WORLD YOUTH DAY
