"Go and make disciples of all nations..." Matthew 28.19
What are Catholic young people saying?
I have experienced some people who remind me strongly of saints or disciples. Their enthusiasm is unmatched by anyone I have ever met. That Jesus died just so we could have salvation The prayer touched me the most. I learned the God really does love me. And I learned that God really does love us more than we think. I am glad I came so I could become closer to God and my faith; I feel I have achieved a great goal. I would really like to start praying more. I am going to put God first in my life. I have learned how to pray and make it mean more. I have also learned that God is with me wherever and whenever I need him. I've learned a bit more about the path to God and I respect him a lot more than before. Iíve realized that we can accept God without feeling ashamed or stupid! Since God has been inside my heart, I donít feel alone as I was. God is there for you. I really believe that he will forgive us when we ask. The stories were cool. I thought it was most meaningful that these kids were my age or even younger. That no matter how high the wall is between you and God you can knock that wall down if you ask forgiveness from God. My feelings with God. I feel like as if I am much, much, much, closer to God. I've learned how to handle people making fun of me. How to settle your heart by talking to someone about the problem. That life just goes on but your heart changes. A lot! I feel God loves me more. I have learned a lot about how much God loves me and everyone else in the world. The songs.The songs were the key to open my heart. To open my heart to God and my new friends. I knew God loved me, but talking about it really touched me. I learned/experienced that God will love us no matter what we do wrong.
I have realized the truth is a bigger deal than I thought it was. My attitude has changed because I am much more open to hear the word of the Lord. I think that I am more open to God. I was impressed by the story about the feathers. I liked the visual of the heart and that taught me more about God’s love. I don’t feel that being close to God is an embarrassing thing. I have a better, warmer attitude toward my faith and Jesus and God. That God is there and be enthused about it. I became more committed to God than I’ve been before. I feel freer and more able to pray, able to let Jesus be #1 in my life. I became a little more excited about confirmation. I’ve been happier and awake when I came I was tired and grumpy. That God is there and always will be. I have a better understanding of what I can do to devote my life to God. I also am learning more about confirmation. I also have a more positive outlook on letting God into my life. I understand that confirmation is more than just the end of CCD. And that the praying is important. I got hungry and I learned more about what God would do. I believe that it is right to believe in God, and that wherever you are; he is always there for you. My beliefs have changed I feel I am closer to God now and will try and head down the path of the Holy Spirit. That God is the most important thing in your life, now I know it’s true. I learned That God has given us two pathways, to believe him or not.
