"Eat little at a time, and only at need. For these things are given to serve you when all else fails. The cakes will keep sweet for many many days, if they are unbroken and left in their leaf-wrappings, as we have brought them. One will keep a traveler on his feet for a day of long labour, even if he be one of the tall men of Minas Tirith."

The Fellowship of the Ring, "Farewell to Lorien"


Lembas, also called Elven bread or Waybread in the Common Speech, was a special food made by the Elves in the Lord of the Rings. It was meant to sustain a traveler on his journey. We too, need food for our journey and it is our hope that these stories from our young people would be like food unto your soul as you journey towards Jesus.

SMU Fides President Marcus Shares His Journey

My journey in Fides has been nothing short of amazing thus far! So often, we hear that walking with God is a journey, and my time in Fides has truly been testament to that.

Receive Lord Jesus, This Heart of Worship

An Interview with Nick Cheang, NUS CSS President

Hi Nick! What has your journey in CSS been like so far?   I initially joined the Chinese cell group because I was attending Chinese mass. What really got me involved in CSS – my turning point, you could say – was my initial interaction with the intercessory group. They usually have adoration every 4th […]

My Journey

Nicolette Pereira, current and 24th President of NTU’s Catholic Students’ Apostolate, shares her journey: I never had a very close relationship with God and was only a mundane Sunday Catholic but there was always something that I felt was lacking in my life. I busied myself with so many things that I thought could fill […]

University Leaders’ Recollection

“Abide in me, as I abide in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in Him, bears much fruit, for without me, you are able to do nothing.”  John […]
