“Walk with us as we deepen our faith!”
The first International Meeting of Advisors to the Vincentian Marian Youth (Paris, July 2014) will be a time that will enable the advisors to come to a deeper understanding of the meaning of accompanying the members of the VMY on their journey of faith.
Yasmine Cajuste, International President, writes “… the young men and women of our Association cry out to our advisors. It is a cry that wants to express gratitude to the many advisors who guide and share our life in good times and in bad times. They nourish our desire to attain a deeper knowledge of Christ and to establish a more intimate relationship with Mary. They strengthen us to be authentic agents of change and true servants of the poor…..
Not everyone will be able to participate in this event but we are all challenged to reflect on how we accompany others and how we allow others to accompany us.
In the meantime, let us continue our journey toward the IV General Assembly (July 2015) where we will deepen our understanding of and our response to the challenges of evangelization.
We can never be too insistent on the fact that we always “walk with someone”. Jesus called his disciples to walk with him and he helped them to understand and to fulfill God’s plan. The journey of faith is never a solitary path but is always a path on which we establish different relationships, a relationship with God and relationships with our brothers and sisters.
