It is also my hope that, after you have made the discernment of the essential and important questions for your youth, for the plan of the whole life that lies before you, you will experience what the Gospel means when it says: “Jesus, looking upon [the young man], loved him” (Mark 10:21). May you experience a look like that! May you experience the truth that he, Christ, looks upon you with love!
