"I am the way and the truth and the life"
In my own experience, I never enjoy service work until I'm actually doing it. Elliott Walz, our Facilities Director at St. Pius, had some great insights in his talk to our High School Youth Group last night.
When he was volunteer working one time, he talked about how he enjoyed it, but felt like he could be doing more. This led him to pursue a heavy machines license so he could help more by driving fork lifts, etc. Service helped him discover his passions in life, and now he has a great job here at St. Pius X doing what he loves.
Let's get our youth excited about service work. As John Paul II said, "Do not be afraid. Do not be satisfied with mediocrity. Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch".
When we serve, we find ourselves and improve the lives of everyone we touch.
