From 4 to 7 July, we had the joy and grace to participate in the pilgrimage to the tomb of Peter, which in the year of faith, was organized for seminarians novices / and of those who are seeking vocations.
A pilgrimage which brought together about six thousand young people who are betting their entire life with Jesus, the Risen One who has had the courage to call us, trusting us, as we were reminded Pope Francis.
A pilgrimage that brought us together in prayer, in reflection, in catechesis, in times of parties and witnesses, on the way to the churches of the city, in a live meeting with Pope Francis, which has seen its climax in the celebration of the Eucharist, which he same presided in the Basilica of St. Peter.
A pilgrimage to the heart and eyes made it clear the communion of God's people, in their specific identity, but in the one belonging to the Church.
A missionary Church, Pope Francis said, it is my desire, because its individual members able to emerge from themselves to meet Jesus Christ, out of himself in order to bring the love and mercy of God to all men, but in especially the poor and marginalized.
May the Lord grant us light and strength so that we too can contribute to the building of the Kingdom in the beauty of the Church, his bride!
