Last edited 17th September 2018

If I Could Change the World... | Year of Youth Blog

Last edited 5th September 2018

Earlier this year, I interned for the Holy See’s (Vatican’s) office at United Nations. Anyone who knows me knows that this has been my dream since I could walk... and it was everything I could wish for. I fell in love wholeheartedly with the work and only more in love with the Church. I watched in awe as the diplomats I worked under stood on the world stage and fought for the dignity and rights of the less fortunate. I hoped one day I could do the same. As I navigated through the grids of New York City, I plotted daily on ways I could return.

Take Prayer Personally

Last edited 5th August 2018

Prayer didn’t play a very big role in my life until I hit my early 20s. Going to Catholic school through high school helped me learn how to recite everything at Mass, as well as the words to all the formal prayers like the Hail Mary and the Our Father; but still, I wasn’t really sure how to truly pray from the heart.

Who the Heck is the Holy Spirit?

Last edited 25th July 2018

Seriously, who the heck is the Holy Spirit? Most people have an idea about God the Father and God the Son, but not much of one when it comes to their more elusive partner in crime, the third person of the Holy Trinity: the Holy Spirit.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall

Last edited 15th July 2018

When we look in the mirror, it’s usually to check our appearance. We ask ourselves if we look OK or if we need to change something. But why do we care so much about how we look? The default answer is usually, “I do it for me,” but do we really do it for ourselves?

Do Your Part And He Will Do The Rest

Last edited 27th June 2018

Rest. We all want it. Maybe more often than we will admit. That's why it doesn't surprise me when people come back from a holiday and are already planning the next one. Could it be then that we are looking for it in the wrong places?

The Deadly Sin That Got Me Shook

Last edited 21st June 2018

If there's one sin that follows me around like a dead smell, it's envy! Like most Millennials, I spend a lot of time scrolling endlessly on YouTube, Snapchat and Facebook. On Instagram, I love filtering, staging and thinking about the composition of my photos. I find it fascinating that anything or anyone can be made beautiful when you edit, edit, edit!
