The older members prayed together regularly for their children and grandchildren. “Most of us grew up in families that did pray and go to church together but we were not so conscious of the needs to care for the poor and vulnerable in the community. Some of our children are more compassionate in that way but have dropped out of church attendance. As for the young ones, I have difficulty understanding their faith life all together.” Yes, but we don’t really know what their relationship with Jesus is and that is what really matters.” “I suppose the way to heaven is not a six-lane highway for any of us, is it?”
“Who will be saved? “Strive to enter by the narrow door, for many will seek to enter and will not be able to. They will knock and say, “Lord open to us” and he will say, “I do not know you.” Luke 13:22-30.
Pope Francis: As adults we find it hard to listen to young people , to appreciate their concerns and demands and to speak to them in a language they can understand. The Holy Spirit blazes new trails to meet their expectations and their search for a deep spirituality and a more real sense of belonging. EG105
