.- Bishop Jorge Eduardo Lozano of Gualeguaychu in Argentina has asked young people that even though there are some “who see you only as part of the crowd” that serves to get them rich, don’t allow “the dreams God has put in your hearts to be stolen.”

In a recent letter to young people, Bishop Lozano said, “The society in which we live is not all lights.  There are shadows of injustice, deception and death,” and he underscored young people’s “great sensitivity” to “the real problems of society” and their “desires to bring about change.”

“I know the fears of young people.  I know their fear of failure, of illness, their fear of death,” their “fear of commitment to love, of superficial and passing relationships.”

After telling them that “intense emotions without love leave a sensation of emptiness,” Bishop Lozano exhorted young people not to allow themselves to be “seduced by the angel of loneliness and desolation,” as the lives of each one of them “has meaning.”

He also noted that young people despise hypocrisy and get easily discouraged when they don’t see results.  “Discouragement slowly but tenaciously strangles the greatest longings of the soul,” he told them.  “Don’t let the dreams God has put in your hearts be stolen.  And never lose hope of achieving a better country.”
