Be a Full-Time Missionary
“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” (Lk 10:2).
A recent estimate shows that over 60% of college students walk away from the Catholic faith during their college years. College environments have become battlegrounds for the minds and souls of young people. From the moment students set foot on campus, their faith and moral life are under assault from what Blessed John Paul II referred to as a ‘culture of death’: a self-centered culture in which God and His ways are seen to be irrelevant.
Will you answer the call to bring the light and truth of Christ to college campuses across the United States?
Be completely convinced of this: Christ takes from you nothing that is beautiful and great, but brings everything to perfection for the glory of God, the happiness of men and women, and the salvation of the world. In these days I encourage you to commit yourselves without reserve to serving Christ, whatever the cost. The encounter with Jesus Christ will allow you to experience in your hearts the joy of his living and life-giving presence, and enable you to bear witness to it before others. – Pope Benedict XVI Address at WYD 2005
