In August, we pray with Pope Francis that the World Youth Day in Lisbon will help young people to live and witness the Gospel in their own lives.

‘Anyone who has truly experienced God’s saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love. Every Christian is a missionary to the extent that he or she has encountered the love of God in Christ Jesus’ – Pope Francis
