About sixty teenagers gathered in the diocese of Scranton at St. John Neumann Regional Academy, Williamsport, PA for a Catholic Youth Rally on Saturday, June 15, 2018.  Romans 12:2 was the basis of the theme, “Transformed”.  “Do not be conformed to this world but be TRANSFORMED by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good, acceptable and perfect.”  The young people responded enthusiastically to the messages of encouragement and challenge.  Christ is the only Truth.  Living the Truth calls for effort and dedication. Sisters from five religious communities and three diocesan priests attended the rally.  Sr. Joseph Marie, Sr. Barbara Maloy, and Sr. Joseph Deirdre participated and felt young again! One message they brought home was the quiet fervor of the youths during the Eucharistic Adoration. They gazed, prayed, and sang with passion and zeal.  Let us pray the Holy Spirit falls afresh on them and transforms them in God’s love.
