Chris Sullivan

This first fundamental transformation of violence into love, of death into life, brings other changes in its wake....His dynamic enters into us and then seeks to spread outwards to others until it fills the world, so that his love can truly become the dominant measure of the world.

What a beautiful homily !

Our 10 year old rushed out of the bath when the Holy Father appeared on TV and sat mesmerised as we saw him proclaim that only love, and not ideologies, can save the world.

Wow !

This is the proclamation of the gospel of peace at its best.

God Bless


Yes. Adults may not realize it, but this is very close to the hearts of the young. They know the world is being transformed before their very eyes and that we are going to a place from where we cannot return. They've been born and raised in the middle of the transformation of society due to globalism and the internet, remember? Their mental categories are not our mental categories.

They worry about what the world will be like when they have their children. They wonder how they will ever make a living and retire--heck, they wonder how they will ever pay for the basics. They wonder about what the basics are!

Many of them know that they are lucky to be alive and that they have been second place to something else. Some of them accept this.

They ponder across cultural lines because they really want to know what is right, and want to know if they can understand that anything could be, in the end. They worry about the environment and about peace. The nonsense of the older generation fatigues them and they think boomers are funny, but sometimes disgusting and selfish.

They EAT UP talk about their role in the transformation of the world. Some of them are fully aware that what messed the world up isn't going to cure it. Many of them are more conservative than most adults believe but again it doesn't follow our category lines.

They are a wonderful development for the world and perhaps they can remedy the horrible carnage we have wrought. I take my hat off to them.


Enjoyed the site and photos. I have a running post on WYD. Will link to you. Great job!



To bow to love's kiss,
And share in Christ's emptying,
Is fire for the world.
