To you, who are at the beginning of the journey of life, I ask: have you thought about the talents that God has given you? Have you thought about how you can put them at the service of others? Don’t bury your talents! Bet on big ideals, those ideals that enlarge the heart, those ideals that will make your talents fruitful. Life is not given to us so that we can keep it jealously for ourselves, but is given to us so that we may donate it. Dear young people, have a great soul! Don’t be afraid to dream great things! – Pope Francis

We enjoyed a post-Easter visit from ASU students.  What a great way to wrap up the Octave!!!  The mini-retreat was spent in prayer and discussion about discernment.  All I can say is: What an incredible group of young people!  Need an influx of hope for tomorrow?…just spend a day with these folks!!!
