St. Charles Borromeo lived during the time of the Protestant Reformation. As Bishop of Milan he himself was instrumental in the reform of the Church. A well educated man, he sought to build up the theological and the spiritual foundation of the Church.
Today I leave for our parish Kairos retreat. We have eighteen high school students with us. My peers think that I am crazy staying with the young people all weekend. It is exhausting but I love it. Under the model of St. Charles, I want these young people to seek what is true and good. More so to build a strong and permanent relationship with Jesus Christ, and His Father in heaven.
So we are off to God's time.
