Young People Then and Now

1 Comment

Previous generations of young people didn’t have their own nice cars, smartphones, life-like [and violent] video games, social media, etc. Times have changed. Have they changed for the better? Young people used to run around outside, build forts and tree houses, spend hours romping around the neighborhood and the countryside. Today, a great number of them are controlled by the things mentioned above. Is this good, bad or neutral for our youth? Call and share your take on Wednesday!

One thought on “Young People Then and Now

  1. The heart of St. Padre Pio was in the city of Lowell, Massachusetts yesterday and thousands came to attend noon Mass and for prayer between the hours of 9 and 5 at the Immaculate Conception Church. The relic was then taken to the North End of Boston and will be displayed at several more parishes in the Boston area. I found it interesting to read the story in the local paper, the Lowell Sun, (available online), but rather shocking to see some of the comments online. There were a number of hateful comments about St. Padre Pio to help make a point that only Christ has power and is to be adored. This plays to the misunderstanding of the Catholic understanding that of course Christ is first and foremost as our Lord, but that His powers can be displayed through the Saints and that our prayers are not meant to adore the Saints, but to ask for their intersession of prayers to our Lord
