A few days until the “youth invasion”
Soon the grounds of the Shrine will be filled with young people from allover the world since the Schoenstatt Youth will meet here for their international gatherings of IGNIS and Hinéni, from 17-20 January 2019, before World Youth Day. For several years, IGNIS has been the name of the gathering of the Young Men’s Youth around World Youth Day, and it is also a Hebrew word meaning “fire.” This means “here I am,” and it is used to describe the state of attention and complete acceptance of God’s will. Hinéni is an enormous YES!
