JPIC Newsbrief – May 2018
The May Newsbrief focuses on Religious life and the challenges of faith witness, particularly with youth. Our prayer in San Marcello, the rich and deep reflections given at the SEDOS Residential Seminar in Ariccia, and the monthly reflection session of the English JPIC Promoters all focus on this particular area. It was revealed that young people experience faith and action for the values of the Kingdom of God in complicated and dynamic relationships, discovering truth and goodness through authentic and genuine models of life. We are constantly reminded that “Instead of seeming to impose [our faith], [we] should appear as people who wish to share their joy, who point to a horizon of beauty and who invite others to a delicious banquet. It is not by proselytizing that the Church grows, but “by attraction.” Cf. Evangelii Gaudium # 15.
