Mangaluru January 20, 2017: The third day of the National Youth Convention began with the morning Prayer. Delegates with much difficulty and drowsy eyes gathered at the venue. The delegates were given a glimpse on Syro Malabar church to get prepared themselves for the celebration of Holy Mass.
His Eminence Mar George Cardinal Alencherry – Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malabar Church celebrated the Holy Mass. In his homily, he gave a message on vocation and about the decision that one has to make. Quoting the words of St Teresa- he said, in midst of suffering, Jesus is always with us so never be discouraged. Giving a call to the youngsters he asked to console all those who are suffering because of various reasons. He encouraged the youth saying we are unique in the eyes of our Lord and nobody can replace us. We are wanted by the Lord to proclaim his word and continue his ministry.
