Yesterday in St. Mary’s Church in Katowice the youth of the Archdiocese of Katowice gathered for the first time on their way to World Youth Day 2016. We started with the Holy Mass, during which God proved to us once again that He gives us the perfect word for every moment. Some of us have smiled while listening to the Reading of the Chapter 13 of the First Epistle to the Corinthians called also Hymn to Love. Each volunteer was reminded that his basic task is to carry love that Saint Paul has written about. After the Holy Mass Fr. Marcin Wierzbicki gave us a short conference. The volunteers have been compared to the apostles – the ones who are lost, who do not understand, but they are sent! There is no reason for concern, because Jesus still chooses those who are in a mess, and what’s more He gives them no choice and he do not pay attention to their weaknesses and fears. He just gives us the task. Anyone who is afraid if he can cope with his tasks should remember the phrase “There is nothing I cannot do in the One who strengthens me.” This is great encouragement for everybody who is still having any doubts.
After the conference we had the opportunity to meet Jesus face to face during Eucharistic adoration. In that time we thanked the Lord Jesus for the previous actions and we asked him for his support in the near future and during the whole period of preparation for the World Youth Day.
Yesterday we finished with informational meeting where we learned everything about upcoming events, tasks, or particular sections of voluntary service and … it is not as scary as it seems to be, so if you are still hesitating just take the risk and engage in this wonderful work by completing the form here: Voluntary service.
