My mom receives “the Word among us” magazine that includes daily Mass readings and reflections. Tonight I read one of the articles that she pointed out to me. It was written by a young man who was deeply impacted by his experience at a Catholic summer camp. He eventually became involved in the organization as an adult. Included in the story, he talked about praying with the students. It reminded me of the powerful Workcamp experiences I was blessed to be a part of. What most of the youth probably never realized is the spiritual impact I felt as I prayed with them. The week of camp each summer was the highlight for most of the youth who participated. But, while it was a lot of work, I received a tremendous uplifting of my spirit as we shared faith together.
I Found God today remembering the impact of praying with youth.
