.- During a celebration for Mission Youth, in which hundreds of young people will take to the streets in Spain to bring the Gospel to their contemporaries, Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Pla of Cartagena said, “Young people are suffering greatly, and pastors cannot remain indifferent, because Jesus was not indifferent.”

Mission Youth is aimed at young people between the ages of 14 and 30, who are being trained as youth missionaries in parishes throughout the Diocese of Cartagena to go out two by two to bring the message of Christ to public places.

According to the diocesan sources, the commissioning of the missionaries will take place in Murcia on the first Sunday of Lent with a Mass celebrated by Bishop Reig Pla, with the initiative ending on Pentecost Sunday.  “Preparation for Mission Youth has already begun in Cartagena and Lorca, and beginning in February, sign-up for volunteers will be held in Caravaca-Mula and Cieza-Yecla,” they said.

“Young people will thus be the missionaries of this diocese at the beginning of the Millennium, amidst a society characterized by indifference,” officials stated.
