Hear From Colin On His Inspiration

"The inspiration of the song comes from the phrase used by Saint Montfort which is "Those whom the world rejects must move you the most." As a youth worker, I can see everyday how some of our clients have been rejected by the world and it has moved my heart to want to support and help them in any way that I can.

The song speaks about the story of Saint Montfort, the mission of the brothers as well as a call for us to continue the mission that has been given to us to care for these youths.

The main chorus is inspired from a passage in the Catholic Bible - Matthew 25:

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

This spoke out to me the most as when I carry out my duties as a youth worker to the youths or when each of us do our part in whatever way, we are indirectly helping Jesus through our work in Boys' Town."
