Epilogue 2019

In preparation for the 500th year of Christianity in the Philippines, the Church established 7 themes each year since 2013. This year, 2019,  has been assigned as “The Year of the Youth”.  Looking at the progression of the theme each year,  it is evident how great importance was placed on youth to have been dedicated a separate year for celebration.

With 60% of the population being under 30 years old in the Philippines, I could not agree more why utmost attention is needed for the youth.  This age range is considered critical, sometimes fragile but malleable enough to be molded into the best propagator of His Word.  They are lively, vibrant, and bold. If you can ignite that small spark of faith within them, with their influence and creativity, they can spread like wildfire.

“Let the children come to me “ (Matthew 19:14), goes our theme for this year.  We must be instrumental to the growth of our youth and encourage them more often rather than criticize their different means in doing things.  May we be good role models of faith and love of God and neighbor.

Thank you for your continued support to the online annual Holy Week Special. May the reflections written by our very own youth give us inspiration and hope that our faith is alive and will live on to the next generations.
