Welcome to Kairos Media
KAIROS MEDIA is the mass media initiative of Jesus Youth, reaching out to young people around the world using modern means of communication - inspiring, supporting, encouraging and building each other up on our spiritual journey and helping establish God’s kingdom, one youth at a time.
Kairos – (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportunemoment (the supreme moment).
The wind of the Holy Spirit blows where it wills. In the late 1990’s, as the Jesus Youth Movement grew and began spreading across India, the idea of a print magazine to aid its evangelisation endeavours - to reach out to young people with the message of God’s redeeming love was conceived. Thus “Kairos” Malayalam magazine was born in May 1997, initially published as a quarterly magazine. From the year 2000, Kairos became a monthly periodical and presently reaches around 100,000 readers every month.
And now, as the long cherished dream of connecting and communicating to Jesus Youth’s around the globe through the English magazine “Kairos Global” is also bearing fruit, we praise God for his abundant goodness and mercy, and in the words of the Psalmist sing, “Great is our God and greatly to be Praised !!!”
Jesus Youth is an International Catholic lay movement approved by the Holy See. Jesus Youth focuses on evangelising young people and nurturing their missionary initiatives. It had its beginnings in Kerala, India, and evolved as an active part of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of the state in the late 1970s. In 1985, the International Year of Youth, a number of youth groups came together under a single name, Jesus Youth. Gradually, Jesus Youth spread to different parts of India and to a number of other countries. It is now active in more than thirty countries.
The strength of the movement is its special focus on a life centred on the Lord Jesus Christ: beginning with an experience of God nourished by prayer, the Word of God, the Sacraments and fellowship and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with others, especially the poor. Jesus Youth strives to cultivate in its members a life of missionary discipleship, urging them to become joyful witnesses of the Gospel in the contemporary world.
Members seek to grow as faithful disciples of Christ, through the six pillars of the Jesus Youth movement, which include regular reading, reflection and study of the Word of God, a commitment to a personal time of prayer and regular participation in the Eucharist and Sacrament of Reconciliation. Community fellowship, service to the oppressed and underprivileged and focus on evangelisation are other key elements of the Jesus Youth lifestyle, fostering a genuine growth and deepening of faith.Know More

We are here to pray for you . Send us your prayer requests ! In the stillness of the night, we offer before the Blessed Sacrament all the prayer intentions coming to us through phone, e-mail and online. For all the problems of life - big or small, healing comes from Jesus who said, “ The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor ” (Lk 4:18). When you feel forlorn, dejected or weighed down by the cares of life, remember the one who exhorted us to “ Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Mt 11:28). Believing in Jesus’ promise, we at Kairos Night Vigil, prays unceasingly for you and your intentions because “ we have heard, and seen with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands - the Word of life !” (1 Jn 1:1)
