Thoughts From a Catholic Youth Minister – Michael Barone

Social peer pressures and an identity crisis. Most teens do not know who or what they are. Each Girl is a Daughter of God the Father, A Sister of Jesus Christ, and a Spouse of the Holy Spirit. Every guy is a Son of God the Father, a Brother of Jesus Christ and a spouse of the Holy Spirit. If teens knew and understood that the challenges they are facing would be easily overcome. The pressure from media to abandon holiness is huge! Social issues depicted on TV, in movies, and books, celebrate unholy living. There is a lot of emphasis placed on being a good person by saving the polar bears and driving a hybrid car, but anything of God or about living your life in His way is mocked and scorned.
