At the 2016 Catholic Worth Youth Day Pope Francis encouraged all young people to seek ‘more’.
The following is an excerpt from his speech: - My friends, Jesus is the Lord of risk, he is the Lord of the eternal “more”.
Jesus is not the Lord of comfort, security and ease.
Following Jesus demands a good dose of courage, a readiness to trade in the sofa for a pair of walking shoes and to set out on new and uncharted paths.
To blaze trails that open up new horizons capable of spreading joy, born of God’s love and wells up in your hearts with every act of mercy.
This notion that we are called to ‘blaze trails’ and ‘open new horizons’ is one that sits very comfortably at Carmel College.
