On Sunday 25 November, the feast of Christ the King, the Church invites young people to be at the heart of our celebration of National Youth Sunday.
Since many young people also engage with the Catholic Faith through their school, the resources provided can be used in both parish or school settings. To help engage young people in this celebration we would like to ask them: Could you live with just one filter?
No one thinks twice about altering an image before posing it on social media – it’s all just part of the process of attracting as many likes and comments as possible. In preparation for National Youth Sunday we want to inspire young people to think about where else in their lives they are using filters.
What do they do to mask who they really are?
Are they hiding or enhancing parts of their lives to make themselves feel good?
What do they do to feel like they belong?
How do they make themselves look right?
We want young people to hear the message that there is ONE filter that helps us stay true to ourselves, that helps us all to measure our lives in the right ways and present ourselves to others as we are. This is the filter of God’s Love.
