Welcome to our special program on the Year of Faith, THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, a series
on the lives of Inspiring People and Witnesses of faith in the Catholic Church from
around the world. These are people who lived their ordinary lives in extraordinary
ways. They are examples of great fortitude and virtue. Their unique stories inspire
us to be rooted in our faith. God calls each one of us today to inspire our brothers
and sisters and to be witnesses of our faith.
The Faithful Witness of this week is Mary Ayyer, a youth from India. She has three siblings and her parents are engaged in faith sharing mission. As an ambitious youth, this 24 year old, who wants to be a missionary, experienced hurdles and challenges from various quarters. And yet her faith made her stand firm in her conviction. Listen to the second part of this interview.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Mary Ayyer from India shares with us her faith and the faith of the youth today. Mary, welcome back to Vatican Radio.
- As a youth, what is your view on faith?
About family, we used to have large families, but it is no more the case now, doesn’t it affect faith formation?
And they (parents) have less time? You are saying parents are first and foremost for the family?
Have you ever faced a difficult situation where faith came as a help?
In your daily life, what do you do to foster your faith?
What do you want to tell our Christian youth?
Thank you Mary. That was Mary Ayyer from India, sharing with us her faith and the faith of the youth today.
