The Youth in Mission Congress in times like these

What safety do we have?

With the final preparations for the 10th “Youth in Mission” congress going on, the recent and religiously motivated Brussel attacks cast a shadow over the event.

Once more we are brutally reminded of the fact that there is no physically safe place. Therefore, it is more important than ever to make our thoughts, our families and friendships a safe place. Sometimes, evil hides in rucksacks. Sometimes, terror wears a suit, and detonates in the hearts of others. Let us think of the Congress as a new opportunity to cast our eyes on the ultimate Good, who became human 2,000 years ago, so that by beholding, we can be transformed.
