Know hope: Christ reigns

This stunning image is from the Catholic Key blog shows the massive eucharistic procession of 22,000 high school students, following Christ through downtown Kansas City yesterday, for the National Catholic Youth Conference.

Their motto this year — fittingly, for the weekend of the feast of Christ the King — is “Christ Reigns.” 

H/T New Advent and Fran.

Thanks for the H/T. I have not heard from the crew at my worship parish, but the the team from my work parish is posting short videos of their experience. It looks amazing! I can tell you that both of my parishes have lively and committed youth ministries, filled with kids who are very alive in their faith. It is beautiful to behold! The youth are not the church of tomorrow but are in fact the church of today.
Thank you for posting this. With all of our discussions, disagreements and so forth, this is an important focus, essential to the life of the church.
