Synod on ‘Young People, Faith and Vocational Discernment’
The Vatican has brought out a document called Christus Vivit (“Christ is Alive”) addressed to young people, the result of the Synod on ‘Young People, Faith and Vocational Discernment’ held in October 2018. In this letter, the Pope encourages young people to grow in holiness by seeking friendship with Jesus, and he provides guidance on how they can discern their vocation. The Pope also addresses the Church as a whole, reminding of the youthfulness the Church should embody, as well as the importance of listening to young people. Please click here to read the document.
