“If we are to share our lives with others and generously give of ourselves, we also have to realize that every person is worthy of our giving. Not for their physical appearance, their abilities, their language, their way of thinking, or for any satisfaction that we might receive, but rather because they are God’s handiwork, his creation. God created that person in his image, and he or she reflects something of God’s glory. Every human being is the object of God’s infinite tenderness, and he himself is present in their lives. Jesus offered his precious blood on the cross for that person. Appearances notwithstanding, every person is immensely holy and deserves our love. Consequently, if I can help at least one person to have a better life, that already justifies the offering of my life. It is a wonderful thing to be God’s faithful people. We achieve fulfillment when we break down walls and our heart is filled with faces and names!” – Pope Francis, Joy of the Gospel
“It’s easy to get wrapped up in our own wants and needs as college students, but CTK gives us all the opportunity to get out and focus on others. I had the opportunity to serve on clean-up crews in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida. It was truly sobering to see the devastation that arose from the hurricane and a huge blessing to pay it forward to families and church communities that needed help. I am so grateful for the opportunities that CTK provides us to meet other young Catholics, to grow in our faith, and to reach out to those in need!”
“Coming from a close-knit church parish in my hometown, I often struggled with opening up to the Catholic community here at LSU. But through volunteering with CTK, I made many connections with other students and together, fostered fellowship and gave relief to those in need.
On each trip I went on, a special and lasting bond formed between all of the volunteers—a bond of respect, familiarity, and love.”
“I’ve really enjoyed working with CTK on hurricane relief efforts. Being able to actually see the difference you are making in people’s lives is incredible. After working on cleaning up all day, you can look back on your progress and tangibly see what you did to help someone and how much it impacts them. I am so grateful to CTK for providing the opportunity to have these amazing experiences serving others.”
