Dear Friends,

On April 2nd Pope Francis issued an apostolic exhortation – a reflection on the Synod of Bishops based on the Youth Synod held in Rome last year.   This is a document well worth studying for those ministering to youth, for those helping men and women to discern their vocation but especially for YOUTH. 

Here is a little extract from that document:

“To discern our personal vocation, we have to realize that it is a calling from a friend, who is Jesus.   When we give something to our friends, we give them the best we have.   It will not necessarily be what is most expensive or hard to obtain, but what we know will make them happy.”

Many blessings as you continue on your discernment journey.

Sincerely,                                                                                                                                                                                                            Pat
