Serving the Lord at a young age is the best! When we start to serve him and love him at our tender years, it is a proof that God is our top priority and all else follows. We can give more when we are young because we are capable of all the sacrifices needed not only spiritually but moreover physically.

O God, light of the faithful and shepherd of souls, who set Saint Michael de Sanctis in the Church to feed your sheep by his words and form them by his example, grant that through his intercession we may keep the faith he taught by his words, and follow the way he showed by his example. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (Vitaesanctorum)
