10th October, Jalandhar: Mr. Mario Joseph, an Islamic Scholar, converted to Catholic Faith, preaching Retreat in Divine Retreat Centre, Potta, in Kerala, conducted a session on the main theme of the ongoing IX National Youth Convention in Jalandhar in Punjab, on 10th October, 2013.

“Transformed by Faith; Transforming the World”, the main theme of the Convention was presented beautifully by the Arabic Scholar Mario Joseph. It was very relevant have him discuss the Central theme of the Convention as he was born a Muslim but came to know Christ later.

Being an Islamic scholar, he was able to bring out the parallel theme between Quran and Bible. Speaking about his experience of being a Catholic, he said, his life has been in danger for choosing Jesus. His own Father tried to kill him, but Jesus saved him.

Speaking to the youth, he said, “Jesus is the Word of God, who bridged the gap between God and man by becoming Human. And he forgave all our sins with His blood once and for all.  Unlike all other religions, forgiveness is a guarantee only in Catholic Faith. That is a beauty of Catholic Church.” He motivated the youth to be deeply rooted the in the Faith. He is deeply convinced that Catholic Church is a true Church. And he has been spreading this message to wherever he goes and brings many people to Christ through the sharing of his personal encounter with Christ.

Ajay Dominic, a delegate from Lucknow Diocese, said this was one of the best session he has attended. He said, “ I am deeply impressed by the strong conviction with which he presented the topic. We will try to be deeply rooted in our Faith.”

Miss Karishma from Diphu Diocese also echoed the same sentiments. She said, “I am touched and inspired by his wonderful message.  And I will try to follow my religion in the same way.” Bryan from Udupi Diocese said, “I liked the talk very much. What touched me most is the fact the he did not give up his faith in Jesus even his own Father tried to kill him.

This talk will certainly help our youth to get  transformed in faith to transform the world.
