The one who evangelizes is evangelized.

Dear Reader,

Praised be Jesus and Mary!

The Pope’s message for the youth during the last World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro struck me. He exhorted the youth to go, to not be afraid, and to serve the cause of evangelization. He said,

“If you allow these three ideas, you will experience that the one who evangelizes is evangelized, the one transmits the joy of faith receives joy.

Indeed, it is true.

I thought that serving in The Emmaus, my faith community, would allow me to give love and joy to my fellow youth and young adults, but, in the end, I was the one to receive love and joy. I thought that evangelizing would let others know more about God. But, during the course, I, too, learned more about Him.

Here is a link to the video of Pope Francis’ message:

All for Jesus,
