« The Church desires to start listening to your voice, to your sensibility, to your faith, but also to your doubts and to your criticisms » Pope Francis
In answering the Pope’s call, and for the 2 nd consecutive time, Sr. Marie who is a member of the committee of the pastoral ministry of vocations in the archbishop’s palace of Beirut, participated in the organization and the animation of the gathering for the 2 nd year students (16 year olds) for the schools of the diocese of Beirut having as topic : Listening to your voice !
This year, 750 youths from 10 schools, have followed the spiritual journey of the disciples of Emmaus ( 94 of whom attend our schools of Baabdath and Baabda) :
In the first place, like Jesus who listened to Cleopas and her friend, the Church gets prepared to listen to the joys, to the hope and at the same time to the sorrows and expectations of youths.
Secondly, the same youths are ready to listen to the Church and discover the main ideas of the final documents of the synod for your people.
And after having encountered Christ in the « sharing of the bread » they shared among themselves the message of hope of Pope Francis’ words. They returned to communicate it joyfully to their neighbour, friends, family, school and in their parishes.
