Saturday night on CTV was a special about religion in Canada.
It said the fastest growing religion in Canada was Wicca. In particular it showed a group of teenage girls doing their wicca thing. The girls expressed that it’s the greatest. Also, to my surprise it interviewed on of their mothers, who thinks it’s great and the whole family now practices it. She said basically that ‘Wicca is great because, you can do anything you want- as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone.’!! How sad!!
On the plus side it also interviewed a young girl who is going through to be a nun… She said she was inspired, when she went to World Youth Day in Rome…At one point she sat in a chapel in the Vatican all alone, and that is where she received her calling. She also said the reason for lack of vocations is because of all the noise surrounding us, and that if we spent more time in private places where there is no noise, we may hear the call.
My husband and I and our 2 children went to World Youth Day in Toronto in 2002. It was awesome! My point is, is that every night we still pray for the fruits of World Youth Days…
Please continue to pray for this also because I’m sure God has touched many a young person through these World Youth Days, but we still need to pray that they answer their calling.
