Youth Must Do Something More Than Ordinary For Church: Archbishop Cornelio

E-mail Print PDF
MANGALORE, NOV. 05 (SAR NEWS): Youth will become creative when they know the reality, said the chairman of the CBCI Commission for Youth, Archbishop Leo Cornelius, at the third national extraordinary general body meeting of the Indian Catholic Youth Movement (ICYM) at Mulki, 30 km from here, November 5. The archbishop said: “Being part of the local Church, the youth must broaden their horizon to be part of the Universal Church. The normal duties that they do on a daily basis are not enough. They must do something more than the ordinary (for the Church and national building). They must make certain sacrifices for a greater cause. It is a challenge to make sacrifices and to give time for the welfare of the whole (youth) movement. “Relationship with God makes us stronger and makes a difference as Christian youth,” the prelate added. He commended the ICYM saying that “a lot of developments have taken place through the ICYM whose members have become part of many international movements”. National director for ICYM, Father Alwyn D’Souza, in his welcome address said, “Our presence here is to prepare an agenda for the next CBCI bishops’ plenary commission, which has chosen the theme ‘Youth for Peace and Harmony’. “We need to evolve a roadmap for the youth of India and as Christian youth we got to make an impact on the burgeoning population of young men and women,” he added. The extraordinary meeting got off to a colourful start with flag-hoisting and an inaugural Mass. As many as 500 youth members and ICYM directors from 13 regions, 80 dioceses participated in the meeting.
