Transformed in You

by Fr. Jeff

I spent the weekend with the parish youth groups on retreat. The high school youth wanted to share their faith with the younger ones. Organized and staffed by them, it was beautiful to watch everyone together. The parents helped with logistics, some of our college youth returned to facilitate, and the high schoolers did all the rest.

They found inspiration for the theme from Romans:

Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect. –Romans 12:2

Watching everyone together, the beauty of the Church was evident. Those who had been Transformed in Him were helping the rest to be

transformed in You.
