Ten insights from Catholic youth, Part VI


VI.                   Love to be a witness
-          At World Youth Day in Madrid there were 2.5 million young people together at once!  Think of the impact this sight had on those who live in Spain, who passed by singing, praying, dancing Catholic youth at every corner.  

-          One of my favorite memories from last summer's trip occurred on the subway.  The youth I was with decided to sing the Salve Regina.  We began to sing in our little corner of the subway.  Toward the end, I looked up and noticed an older man in the corner, singing along.  I doubt the Salve was part of his daily commute, but on this occasion he was inspired to sing a prayer to Mary with strangers from another continent.
