Youth and the Church

Kasama (21/07/15). At the July Bicentenary Youth Rally of the Birth of Don Bosco (2015 City of Hope Lusaka), Fr. Musonda (archdiocese of Kasama – Zambia) challenged the youth whether they are a factor in the church. He was reflecting on the theme: participation of the youth in the church. He asked each one to endeavour to be a matter in the life of the church from wherever they are (parish or any grouping).

Fr. Musonda, may as well have said: Are you a factor at your church, school, work place and society at large? Does it matter that you are there or not? Does your presence make any difference? Do family/parents look forward to your returning home? Who dreads your absence anyway?
