Fr. Kustas Lima, the coordinator of the youth of the Khanapur Deanery, arranged online talks for the youth of Belagavi. Fr. Robert Johnson, from the Diocese of West Bengal, and Fr. Ternan Monteiro of the Bombay Jesuit Province were the guest speakers for this occasion. Fr. Robert Johnson advised the youth not to fear, but be confident to learn to smile in difficult times and to make each one’s life a masterpiece. Fr. Ternan explained how stress builds up in our day to day life and through various examples guided the youth how to cope with daily life stress. The youths clarified their doubts in the interactive sessions with the speakers. Fr. Kustas encouraged the youth to practice self-care, help others, and to rely on God. The youth were happy to have a session like this and requested Fr. Kustas to keep conducting such sessions in future too.
