Fr Michael de Stoop led two meditations: 'Being Truly Alive' and 'Reflecting on God's Will'.
These meditations were inspired by the theme for Reasons for Hope 2010:
'To be truly alive is to be transformed from within, open to the energy of God's love.'
These words were taken from Pope Benedict XVI's Papal Vigil at the 2008 World Youth Day. The Pope's words are a call to all young people to come to know and love the Holy Spirit, and recognize the power of the Spirit in each of our lives.
