Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies
and the God of all consolation, who consoles us in all our affliction, so that we may
be able to console those who are in any affliction with the consolation with which
we ourselves are consoled by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are abundant
for us, so also our consolation is abundant through Christ. If we are being afflicted,
it is for your consolation and salvation; if we are being consoled, it is for your
consolation, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings
that we are also suffering. Our hope for you is unshaken; for we know that
as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our consolation.
2 Corinthians 1:3-7
The Youth Council of the Diocese of Bethlehem and every young adult that participates in youth events are the perfect example of this passage. They are such wonderful and kind individuals who work very hard to to help others be enlightened as they have.
