Synod on the Youth, Editorial team •
The two Schoenstatters present at the Synod on the Youth, Fr. Alexandre Awi and Lucas Galhardo, sent a video message to the entire International Family. —
Message from Fr. Alexandre:
At the end of the Bishops’ Synod on the Youth, we are very happy to send a very special greeting to the entire Schoenstatt Family allover the world. For us it was a great joy to accompany this Synod and to also bring the presence of our spirituality, our Movement, and thus contribute so that the Blessed Mother, the Covenant of Love, and all the values of our Schoenstatt apostolic youth could be present at this Synod.
Message from Lucas Galhardo:
What our founding father, Joseph Kentenich, said, the “Dilexit Eclessiam” – “He loved the Church” touched me very much throughout this Synod. In so doing, he invited you to also really love the Church, and to continue our road together now that the Synod begins in our realities. So I invite you to live this culture of encounter, this culture of dialogue, our covenant culture among the generations. Therefore continue walking together and seeking more efficient roads to take the joy and the love of Jesus to everyone.
Very well… now to live the Synod together… we are taking the covenant culture to the youth allover the entire world.
God bless you!
