This past weekend was the National Catholic Singles Conference in San Diego, Calif. Over the next few weeks I will share all the fun memories of the conference, including a slideshow of all the pictures taken from the weekend!
For those of you who weren’t able to make the conference, we wanted to give you a gist of what the speakers talked about, so I live tweeted every talk under the hashtag #NCSC14. Here is a collection of my favorite tweets from the weekend.
Martha Fernández-Sardina – Get a Lover, Be a Lover!
We are called to be saints. We are called to be lovers. So that people can see God in you before they hear you speak about God. #NCSC14
God holds you in His heart because you are precious to Him. Remember to treat everyone with love b/c they are precious to God. #NCSC14
Don’t undervalue yourself. We should be able to say with humility and confidence: “I am wonderfully made” #NCSC14
You are daddy’s little boy or girl no matter how grown-up you are. The King of the Universe is your Father. #NCSC14
Our love life begins with a relationship with the God that would die for you. #NCSC14
Feedback about the National Catholic Singles Conference: Fred from Austin, TX said: “I am missing football for this and I don’t even care!”
John LaBriola – Healing the Wounded Heart
Unforgiveness is the biggest way the devil gets into your lives. #NCSC14
God wants your heart. Give him your heart. He will redeem it. #NCSC14
Our hearts need healing. Ask God to mend your heart. #NCSC14
There is nothing that you are going through right now that can’t bring you closer to Jesus. #NCSC14
Christa Lopiccolo – Intimacy and Fruitfulness in the Single Life
Your singleness is not a disease. Is not something that is wrong with you. #NCSC14
We do not need to fear the Lord. We do not need to fear our past. Whatever our life story has been, God can use it for great glory. #NCSC14
What is the sexual revolution? Sex and childbearing separated from each other and both from marriage. #NCSC14
Don’t hang your head. Be proud of your Catholic faith. #NCSC14
Fr. Jacob Betrand – Living the Single Life with Singleness of Heart
Don’t you hate your will sometimes? You keep committing that particular sin over and over? We have the ability to change, but do it thru love. #NCSC14
We are really good at wanting love, but not at giving love. #NCSC14
Put on kingdom vision. See and hear the world differently. Change how you live. #NCSC14
If you feel lonely get back to a single heart. Do you have one love focused on Christ? #NCSC14
We were made for another and yet we feel alone. #NCSC14
How do we sincerely give of ourselves? By making space in our hearts. #NCSC14
Singles desire a real intimacy with people who care about them. Make the church your family. #NCSC14
Singles need to be evangelized and they need community. They crave it. #NCSC14
