“Every day we have to decide am I going to follow Christ, or am I going to follow the false values of the world?” Bishop Guillory said during Mass at the Diocesan Youth Convention in Houston June 22.
He addressed the challenges that not only young people face but everyone faces when trying to be faithful to Jesus, especially while searching for hope or combatting loneliness.
“That hope, that faith is Jesus Christ,” Bishop Guillory said. “We are anchored in him.”
Following Mass, young people attended a keynote session, participated in service projects, took part in a talent show and concert before evening prayer capped off the third and next-to-the-last day of the youth convention.
