Far from offering an escape from the problems of the world, the Rosary obliges us to see them with responsible and generous eyes, and obtains for us the strength to face them with the certainty of God’s help and the firm intention of bearing witness in every situation to “love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony” (Colossians 3:14).

I’m a girl and I love weddings.
Big surprise, huh? I’ve spent many of my 22 years dreaming up the most perfect wedding. And since the creation of Pinterest, the harmless dreaming has become a borderline-addictive pinning-spree of dresses, cakes and the world’s most adorable flower girl outfits. So, it’s only natural, that I fell in love with the story of the Wedding at Cana when I started praying the rosary regularly last year.

The third day of “Behold the Mystery” Life Teen Summer Camp began with fun as guys went to the pool first and girls bonded during low ropes. After lunch, the guys did low ropes and the girls relaxed in the pool. The group was reunited with a rosary and Mass celebrated by a parish priest and con-celebrated by Fr. Matt Williams. Host Joe Chernowski introduced the teens to the mystery of God’s invitation to prayer with the help of Mary and the saints. To end the night, summer staff prayed over campers, chaperones and youth ministers asking for the intercession of Mary and the saints.
Day five of “Behold the Mystery” summer camp began and ended in similar manner: with prayer, scripture and Jesus. In the morning, middle schoolers prayed a rosary before they played kickball and messy games. The large group of campers was split into two groups for both kickball and the rotating stations of messy games which included paint dodgeball, Drip. Drip. Drop., an oatmeal and flour mess, slip and slide, a wet sleeping bag relay race and a paint twister game. Afterwards, the campers jumped in the lake to rinse off before showering. Once they were clean, Mass was celebrated by Father Tom Washburn, OFM with music led by John Hopke. The night session was centered on prayer and Jesus as summer staffers prayed over chaperones and chaperones prayed over teens which led into Adoration. Host Kevin Hickey did his best in leading the middle schoolers into faith and fun.
