On the feast of Christ the King, every year, the church focuses on its young people and celebrates everything that you bring to the world. Youth is not just about age however – it’s about our attitude. Anyone can be youthful if they fill their lives with joy and excitement. National Youth Sunday is a chance to recognise what young people bring to the Church of today. Think this week about what it’s like to being a young person in today’s world – is it easy? What difference can you make to the world around you?

One of the incredible things about being a young person is the effect that you can have on the world and those in it. The possibilities are endless, and you have the way open ahead for you to do whatever you want. As long as you follow in Christ’s footsteps, loving God and others, the sky is the limit.

The video below is from a social experiment that Channel 4 aired called Old People’s Home For 4 Year Olds. 10 children spent six weeks at a nursery in a retirement home, and the benefits for both the children and the elderly people were incredible.

In Timothy 4:12-13 it says:

Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young but set an example for the leaders in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

Reflect on the scripture, and on the times that you have helped those around you, this morning.

This year the theme of Youth Sunday is Together. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every part of life, and the way we live, work, study, play and pray have all changed. The most significant change has been that we have not been able to do many of those things together. This year’s theme recognises what it means to be ‘together’; with ourselves, with others and with God.

“To come out of this crisis better than before, we have to do so together; together, not alone. Together. Alone no, because it cannot be done. Either it is done together, or it is not done. We must do it together, all of us, in solidarity”.

Pope Francis, September 2020

As we learn to live together again alongside the COVID-19 virus, the world isn’t quite the same as it was. But there is still much to make us hopeful.

There is something special about being together – being a part of a community – it is our togetherness which tells us who we are. It heals us and makes us complete. As young people you are a big part of that, and of the hope that people need.
