Putting our faith in the youth



Meeting of Brothers and Laity

22/10/2019: El Salvador

Forty lay people and brothers took part in the final meeting this year of the "Oasis" Programme in El Salvador. The participation of brothers underlined the challenge of communion, sharing our faith and charism with the laity.

The focus of the reflection was on the Papal Exhortation Christus Vivit, which was the motivation for one of the objectives of Oasis: to place our faith in life with our youth. In a simple reminder given at the end of the meeting, some dimensions of this commitment to life were recalled, such as the commitment to communion, to a rejuvenated Church and to a renewed charism.

Among the echoes that resonated were: working  for an open-door Church, for a Church that listens more and recognizes that some things must change. The echoes also sounded on a personal level: not to be strange, but at the same time to dare to be different, to demonstrate other dreams that this world does not offer.

The meeting allowed us to have an experience of enriching dialogue, but also of silence and self-discovery which nourished the desire to continue building firmly the way of communion for the Marist future.
