Various youth sought advice about the mysteries of faith in a Panel Discussion entitled “Word on the Street,” a segment on Relentless: Singles & Youth Faith on Fire (SYFOF) 2017 event last Saturday.
Through the panel discussion, frequently asked questions from today’s youth were answered by fellow youth with the guidance of Fr. Jade Licuanan ACY Commissioner of the Archidiocese of Manila.
One of the questions that struck most people was ‘Does God really not answer prayers?’
According to Jolo Baclig, member of Dulaang T.U.P.A of the Lord’s Flock, God may not answer prayers instantly but surely, He got plans for you.For something to be nice, everything must be organized.
“We just have to wait because God answers,” Baclig said.
Baclig pointed out that everyone must be patient on God’s process. He makes sure everything is in place before he blesses you with His goodness. And, where would the excitement and thrill go if you easily get the things you want.
Bacligurged fellow youth to never get tired from trusting God.
Many other questions were answered in the panel discussion, it was a platform to help thousands of young people deepen their faith in the Lord and in the faith. It was also a testimony that although our mission as Catholics is full of mysteries, it is a beautiful and worthwhile commitment. (Kate Dolot)
