Youth is the same children 🙂
It will sounds maybe too loudly and pathetically but youthfulness is the state of our soul, in my opinion: it cannot be acquired or bought; either you have it or not. Obviously, it can be saved, developed as a gift or, lost.

It is the third millennium nowadays; therefore, the youth is different from the one in last century. Men of the street and of market place believe that youth is not able to influence global processes happening in the world. Nevertheless, the history teaches us something different: despite the lack of life experience and energy in the diverse life dimensions youth can and have to change the world, and it has been doing this.
Youthfulness is very important, the super important time, I would say, for formation and development. And, in the same time, it can be the time of the great deeds and an immense devotion. We hear very often that youth is the future; it is the contemporaneity as well, nonetheless.
Youthfulness is the time of making choice… To choose and to choose in a right way is very important that has its consequences and very often influences our whole life.
Church is not a sacred building, walls. The union of the people of God made by the faith in one God, namely, the youth is the Church too.
There are no contingencies in the world; rather, there are contingent regularity called God’s Providence, which is first.
The youth always demands more attention to itself, more openness, sincerity, and truth. There is no too much efforts made by it. Its vector has always to have been growing.
All the time I am persuaded that one cannot do a lot by him/herself; one’s wisdom and the muscle power cannot influence all the processes. If God does not help in what one is doing, one is not able to do a lot – “unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain,” Psalmist says.
The youth is the same children but they have deeper questions and there are more of them.
All of the global issues start from the little human heart, from the keeping ourselves in harmony. Then you and “a thousand souls around you will be saved.”
