A mass right next to a lake was the plan. A handful of young girls had worked hard to arrange the mass as part of their confirmation preparation. They were very attentive and had written poignant prayers. In the sermon, I shared experiences of living the gospel that I had had with other young people. This made the topic of the service "God speaks through reality!" relevant and vivid to them. After the service, I invited the small group for an ice cream. We had a lively exchange and I was able to hear what was planned for the holidays and what else was on their minds. As I said goodbye, one young girl said with a bright smile: "Thank you so much! Not only for the ice cream!"
