Soul Food

Apart from our shared love for Jesus, we at OYP also share a great love for food so that tells you a little bit about our choice of words here!

But as it says in scripture,"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." - Luke 4:4

It is our hope that the stories and reflections you find here will serve to encourage and bless you on your faith journey. We hope it serves as a reminder that none of us are really alone!

Men of God. Meant for God.

By Jonathan Chua Dear brothers, What does it mean to be a real man? When I was a young boy, I looked to the world for what it meant to be a man. Finding a clear definition of masculinity was an especially difficult one which only led me to superheroes or the ‘perfect’ men in […]

SOCL 2019: Reflections on the Father’s Love

By Joseph Fernandez I have never understood God the Father. When people tell me to picture the Father, the first thing I think of is God the Unmoved Mover, a First Cause from which all Creation sprang from, but not a person I can have a relationship with. Funnily enough, I did not have this […]

KICKSTART: God Welcomes Me Home

Before Kickstart, I was a lukewarm Catholic, going for Sunday masses for the sake of obligation and not keeping Christ in the centre of my life as I fell deeper and deeper into the ways of the world. During Kickstart, I felt that it was a wake-up call for me to really listen to what […]

KICKSTART: The Unconditional Love of the Lord

Before Kickstart, an old lie had begun to creep back into my heart about having to earn the father’s love. I was dreading the start of university because I thought that it was going to be another platform for me to “earn” that love. During Kickstart, the Lord revealed his unconditional love for me once […]

The Vocation of Womanhood

By Ariel Leia See   The Desire to Love and be Loved My dear sisters, have you ever had (or do you still have) this insatiable longing deep within your hearts to love and to be loved?   I know I do. Since I was a little girl, I wished to be chosen, seen and […]

KICKSTART: Grateful for Community

Community life has kept me accountable for maintaining my faith life in NUS. The hectic nature of school makes it easy to get lost in the worldly and we forget that we are called to serve God in our thoughts, words and deeds. Going for campus mass and CG sessions provide the dedicated time and […]

The Gift of Music

By Sherilyn Chong   I was watching a video about a priest sharing how he got into learning an instrument. He was explaining that he was not a professional, but an amateur, which in French means, ‘one who loves’.   I first discovered my love for music at the age of six. Obviously, I didn’t […]

KICKSTART: Grounded in the Lord

Coming into Kickstart, I wasn’t sure if I really needed the retreat experience and it was with this mindset that I entered. Looking back however, the 2 days of sharing and companionship was an amazing time and a great time to reflect on entering university as a Catholic. Any hesitation I came in with was […]

KICKSTART: Seen and Loved

I had my first intimate encounter with Jesus in my university life at Kickstart. Entering University was scary, and there were so many new things to try and experience. The biggest fear I had in university was that I would lose myself in the midst of pursuing grades and achievements. It was in Kickstart that […]
