Message from Pope John Paul II
The world is bombarded by countless varieties of sounds and voices.
There is one voice, however, different from all others that comes to us - very
gently at times, and at the same moment, terribly vigorous- indeed very
mysterious, easily identified, very personal, clearly unmistakable...directed to the youth with courage for great tasks; apprehensive toward evil's acts and
mediocrity. It is both a gentle invitation as well as a very strong
command- as gentle as a breeze but also as strong
as a severe wind - the voice of Christ saying,
"COME, FOLLOW ME".
(Matt 4:19; Jn 1:43)
