Dear young people… You can improve the world and leave an imprint that makes a mark on history—your history and that of many others. The Church and society need you. With your plans and with your courage, with your dreams and ideals, walls of stagnation fall and roads open up that lead us to a better, fairer, less cruel and more humane world. - POPE FRANCIS
You don’t have to be an elite athlete, boast a sky-high GPA, or be on a wildly successful career path. You can make the world better, right where you are. Today. Right now. And for the rest of your life.
from Called to Change the World
This brief, empowering booklet is inspired by Pope Francis’ theme for World Youth Day 2019 in Panama: I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word (Luke 1:38). Mary’s powerful fiat shows how she took decisive action to change the world by saying “yes” to God’s plan.
In 14 short reflections on Mary’s life and experiences, and including prayer, journaling prompts, and service ideas, young people can learn from Mary's example how they, too, can turn their passions—whether it's the environment, equal rights for all, social justice, or simply being a friend—into meaningful, lasting change.
Do you know a young person who is ready to change the world? Help them find their focus by reflecting on Mary’s trust in God and discovering the incredible plan God has in mind for them.
