I must admit, those were challenging days, for I was always on retreat myself, inspiring me constantly to self-examination, living my Chrisianity consciously. I could not pretend around these young people, (youths see through you quite easily). I had to live a Christianity that reflected a kind of love, care, concern for those around me that was not a ‘put on’ but flowed from a heart that was genuine. Not giving way to pride, anger, to insincerity that flows naturally from the heart.
