A Time For Listening (By: Robert Rivas O.P.)
Youth without ideals --stagnate
Youth without self esteem --are weak
Youth without self-respect -- are impoverished
Youth without a passion -- for life drift
Youth without discipline -- lack docility
Youth without goals -- lack hope
Youth without a challenge -- lack courage
Youth without service -- are selfish
Youth without a mission -- are empty
Youth without a mentor -- go astray
Youth without love -- languish
Youth without support -- are defeated
Youth without violent -- self-destruct
Youth without generosity -- are feeble
Youth without a love for truth -- are volatile
Youth without hope -- are rudderless
Youth without virtue -- are vulnerable
Youth without GOD -- are lost
Youth committed to Christ -- are saved
Youth of the Beatitudes -- transform the world
Youth who listen -- are wise
Give and blessings will be yours, and the fullness of life.
Do to no one what you would not want done to you.
Give your bread to those who are hungry, and your clothes to those who are naked.
Ask advice of every wise person;bless the Lord God in everything,
Beg him to guide your ways and, bring your paths and your purposes to their end.
This is a message from The National Commission on Crime Prevention (NCCP).
