Fellowship is like yeast in bread – without which the bread will deflate and not rise. Similarly, in our faith journey – especially as a Jesus Youth who is constantly put to test in everyday life situations, it is hard to keep going strong at all times. It is not easy to be a Catholic nowadays and it surely isn’t easy to go evangelize in such a hard-hearted world. Sometimes it may get tiring and even be disheartening. In addition to that, what happens when we face a very low moment in life? Do we get angry at God? Do we lose trust? It is in these moments that fellowship can help us remember that in togetherness, God makes us strong. Spending time with others can heal us. I often look up to my friends and elders, always feeling inspired and rejuvenated by their life stories. I learn so much from just being around them, and that has truly helped shape my faith and how I live my life. Personally, something which I find really helpful is that I have a friend who keeps account of my last confession date and keeps reminding me to go every month. These simple acts of fellowship and relationships we build, can become very crucial in our faith journey.
