Jesus invites every disciple to give their entire lives, without expecting any human advantage or benefit. Saints welcome this demanding request and meekly and humbly start following the crucified and risen Christ. The Church gazes at the sky of holiness and sees an increasingly large and bright constellation of young men and women, adolescents and young saints and blesseds who, ever since the time of the first Christian communities, have endured until our time. When the Church invokes them as our patrons, she indicates them to young people as references for their existence. Various BC (Bishops’ Conferences) are asking to highlight the value of youth holiness for education purposes, and young people themselves admit that they «are more receptive to a “literature of life” than an abstract theological discourse» (Pre-Synodal Meeting [PM], Part II, Introduction). Since young people say that «the stories of the Saints are still relevant to us» (PM 15), then it is important to present them in a way that is appropriate to their age and situation. – Instrumentum Laboris for the Synod 2018.
