Witness: George Devassy
November 17, 2014
Born and raised in India, George Devassy has a real passion for the youth and for his faith as a Catholic. And it is this passion that led him to become the international co-ordinator of the Jesus Youth lay movement at the age of 26.
The Jesus Youth movement has a charismatic spirituality and adopts a lifestyle of personal prayer, the Word of God, sacraments, fellowship, service and evangelization. It was established during the World Youth Day 2002 in Toronto. In countries like India, where Catholics represent less than 4% of the population, there are movements like Jesus Youth that are taking the Catholic faith to other parts of the world.
In this exclusive interview by Fr. Thomas Rosica with a young, evangelist of our times, meet George Devassy and allow yourself to be inspired and evangelized.
