God gives you the freedom and responsibility to make plans. It is positively right for you to do this. And yet, God relates your decisions to your destination. This is not a reason to be passive or fatalistic, but rather it is an encouragement that you can rest assured that God is in ultimate control of your life. You need not be frozen in a state of indecision.

Many parishes struggle with the challenge of building youth and young adult "programs" instead of ministries. They struggle to get young people engaged and connected with the parish community and become frustrated with poor attendance and low engagement. The goal of youth and young adult ministry is not to form clubs or groups that gather. Such groups might be a result of developing ministries around specific needs such as service groups, youth sports, communities preparing for a sacrament, young mother's group, men's bible study, Hispanic young adult ministry, and others, but these groups are not the end goal. Small faith-sharing communities can be the catalyst for relationship building within the parish but the overall goal of youth and young adult outreach is to integrate youth and young adults into the life, mission, and work of the parish and the Catholic Church. To accomplish this, parishes must dialogue about how to facilitate encounters with Christ, how intentionally invite, welcome, and include youth and young adults in parish life, and how to sustain these connections by accompanying youth and young adults for mission.
Heavenly Father,You call people from all walks of life to You.You have called me to walk with young people and accompany them on their journey of faith.Nourish me by your Body and Blood.Sustain me through your Body the ChurchEncourage me through Your Word.Help me to be your hands, feet and voice to all young people I meet.I ask this in the name of your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.
A limb has fallen from the family tree. / I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me. / Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. / The good life I lived while I was strong. / Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you. / Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. / My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. / Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.Continue traditions, no matter how small. / Go on with your life, don't worry about falls / I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin. / Until the day comes we're together again.
And if I go, / while you're still here... / Know that I live on, / vibrating to a different measure / --behind a thin veil you cannot see through. / You will not see me, / so you must have faith. / I wait for the time when we can soar together again, / --both aware of each other. / Until then, live your life to its fullest. / And when you need me, / Just whisper my name in your heart, / ...I will be there.
If all the Music died, / And music-makers ceased, / I think you'd stand and sing / A hymn of Hope and Peace. / If nights of doubts and fears / Against the Light were hurled, / I think you'd light a candle / And stand against the world. / If winds of changing times / Up-rooted trees and sod, / I think instead of mocking, / You'd stand in praise of God. / The courage of your life / Is like a work of art / Inscribed by Memory's hand / Upon my grateful heart.
I hope your days are so very kind / and your stars bring love to you. / May all your wishes have reality / and your skies are always blue. / Your days will be so many / for life is so very long. / But as I go shed no tears / and sing no good-bye song. / Time to open those golden gates / and walk those timeless stairs. / Let me hold all your sorrows / and give me all your fears. / Make me no hero / nor a page in a history book. / Build me no statues of glory / for all the future to look. / Farewell my friends, / my time has ended, you know. / Be good, but be happy / with peace and love as I go.
Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, / but remember me in every tomorrow. / Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles, / I've only gone to rest a little while. / Although my leaving causes pain and grief, / my going has eased my hurt and given me relief. / So dry your eyes and remember me, / not as I am now, but as I used to be. / Because, I will remember you all / and look on with a smile. / Understand, in your hearts, / I've only gone to rest a little while. / As long as I have the love of each of you, / I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.
Should you go first and I remain, / To walk the road alone, / I'll live in memory's garden, dear, / With happy days we've known. / In Spring I'll wait for roses red, / When fades the lilac blue, / In early Fall when brown leaves call / I'll catch a glimpse of you. / Should you go first and I remain, / For battles to be fought, / Each thing you've touched along the way / Will be a hallowed spot. / I'll hear your voice, I'll see your smile, / Though blindly I may grope, / The memory of your helping hand / Will buoy me on with hope. / Should you go first and I remain, / To finish with the scroll, / No length 'ning shadows shall creep in / To make this life seem droll. / We've known so much of happiness, / We've had our cup of joy, / And memory is one gift of God / That death cannot destroy. / Should you go first and I remain, / One thing I'd have you do: / Walk slowly down that long, lone path, / For soon I'll follow you. / I'll want to know each step you take / That I may walk the same, / For some day down that lonely road / You'll hear me call your name.
When I am gone, release me. Let me go / I have so many things to see and do. / You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears, / Be happy, we had so many years. / I gave you my love and you can only guess / How much you gave to me in happiness. / I thank you for the love you each have shown / But now it's time I traveled alone. / So grieve a while for me if grieve you must / Then let your grief be comforted by trust. / It's only for a while that we must part / So bless those memories in your heart. / I won't be far away for life goes on / So if you need me, call and I will come. / Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near / with all my love around you soft and clear. / And then, when you must come this way alone, / I'll greet you with a smile and / "Welcome You Home".
When I am dead / Cry for me a little. / Think of me sometimes / But not too much. / It is not good for you / Or for your wife or your husband / Or your children / To allow your thoughts to dwell / Too long on the Dead. / Think of me now and again / As I was in life / At some moment it is pleasant to recall. / But not for long. / Leave me in peace / As I shall leave / you, too, in peace. / While you live / Let your thoughts be with the Living.
You are not forgotten, / loved one nor will you ever be, / as long as life and memory last /we will remember thee. / We miss you now, our hearts are / sore as time goes by we'll miss / you more your loving smile, / your gentle face, no one can / fill your vacant place.
Your gentle face and patient smile, / with sadness we recall. / You had a kindly word for each, / and died beloved by all. / The voice is mute and stilled the heart, / that loved us well and true. / Ah, bitter was the trial to part / from one so good as you. / You are not forgotten loved one, / nor will you ever be. / As long as life and memory last, / we will remember thee. / We miss you now, our hearts are sore, / as time goes by we miss you more, / your loving smile, your gentle face, / no one can take your vacant place.
We little knew that morning, / God was going to call your name. / In life we loved your dearly, / In death we do the same. / It broke our hearts to lose you, / You did not go alone, / For part of us went with you, / the day God called you home. / You left us beautiful memories, / Your love is still our guide / And though we cannot see you, / You are always by our side. / Our family chain is broken / And nothing seems the same / But as God calls us one by one / The chain will link again.
God's love endureth forever- / What a wonderful thing you know / When the tides of life run against you / And your spirit is downcast and low... / God's kindness is ever around you, / Always ready to freely impart / Strength to your faltering spirit, / Cheer to your lonely heart... / God's presence is ever beside you, / As near as the reach of your hand, / You have but to tell Him your troubles, / There is nothing He won't understand... / And knowing God's love is unfailing, / And His mercy unending and great, / You have but to trust in His promise- / "God comes not too soon or too late"... / So wait with a heart that is patient / For the goodness of God to prevail- / For never do prayers go unanswered, / And His mercy and love never fail.
