Thoughts for the Weekend:
NCYC (the National Catholic Youth Conference) is a biyearly conference that brings high schoolers all across the United States to one location to celebrate their Catholic faith in the one of the most joyous ways: fellowship. Thousands upon thousands of attendees (both students and chaperones) attend every year-- generally, there will be most than 20,000 people in person at the conference!
And it's happening right now in Indianapolis.
Think about it. All of those people, young and old, praying and putting their trust into Christ.
Even if you aren't there, there are still things to be learned through it. Where are you finding fellowship in your faith? Joy? Prayer? Do you celebrate your faith and your brothers and sisters in Christ? What can you do to bring all of that
For even more inspiration, here's a video to help you understand just how empowering celebration of faith can be:
