When we came to Vienna to participate on a Singles Congress, I was a little nervous, because it was my first time on a Congress and I did not know what to expect and I also did not know anyone but my delegation. But I was confident that it is going to be great. And I was not wrong. The most inspiring for me was when I saw 200 people raising their hands and singing their hearts out when we were praising God. It felt like being on a rock concert, except there was no famous rock group and everything was for the glory of our Lord. I liked very much all the sessions and workshops. When the speakers were standing in front of all of us, talking about their experiences and sharing their thoughts, I was stunned by the ease they seemed to talk with, although I am pretty sure their job was anything but easy.
I could feel true love for God in them, the kind of love that I rarely see in people I usually hang out with. The love that I am hoping to feel some day too. And holy masses we had, were the most beautiful ones I have ever experienced. When we sang and prayed… there was Jesus among us. It was a very comforting feeling. To feel God all around us, to know that He is watching over us. And not only that that weekend was extremely rewarding in terms of deepening my faith, it was also very fun. The competitions we had were funny and exciting. It was the first time I was on the stage and I did not feel nervous at all. I thank you all for that, because it was you guys who made me feel comfortable. Your clapping, shouting and cheering for all of us. The whole weekend was a great experience for me and I am very glad that I decided to go.
