By experiencing the love of God and sharing it with those around us, we will find the answers to our deepest questions and longings, said Auxiliary Bishop John Sherrington of Westminster.
"When we give ourselves away to others in love, then we really do discover who we are, and it really is satisfying and fulfilling," he said.
The bishop spoke at a July 24 catechesis session at World Youth Day, addressing a group of English-speaking pilgrims from countries including the United States, Ireland, Norway, the Caribbean, Ghana, England, Australia, and the Philippines.
A key part of the formation at World Youth Day, the catechesis events offer a chance for pilgrims to be divided into smaller groups by language in order to hear a talk from a bishop and participate in a question-and-answer period. Confession and Mass are also a part of the sessions, along with song, prayer and reflection.
