Description of session l.jpg
Description of session:

Young people today need models of faith; “Witnesses of the Resurrection” (Luke 24:33-35) that can concretely relate to their daily ordinary life experiences. Teens and young adults live in a media saturated world that continuously influences the building of their identity. They are presented with a multitude of images, models, values, paradigms and social structures that are often distorted or void of evangelical values, especially in the area of love, sexuality and relationships. This session aims at exploring what it means to be a “Witness of the Resurrection” in the lives of young people today. We will look at the elements which facilitate the building of these trusting spiritual relationships, necessary to encourage and accompany young people to discover the essence of being made in the image of God by proposing Jesus Christ as a relevant model for becoming good, honest Christian citizen; the Saints of the New Millennium.

    If we think of the resurrection as an event that is “perpetual” or as the experience of the Paschal Mystery such as what we experience in the Eucharist.


    Slide42 l.jpg

    “Source and summit” of the Church’s life, the Eucharist is a “perpetual Pentecost” since every time we celebrate Mass we receive the Holy Spirit who unites us more deeply with Christ and transforms us into Him. My dear young friends, if you take part frequently in the eucharistic celebration, if you dedicate some of your time to adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the Source of love which is the Eucharist, you will acquire that joyful determination to dedicate your lives to following the Gospel. At the same time it will be your experience that whenever our strength is not enough, it is the Holy Spirit who transforms us, filling us with his strength and making us witnesses suffused by the missionary fervour of the risen Christ.

    The human person, created in the image of God, grows and matures in all its dimensions through the experience of relating. This helps one to unify cognitive, motivational and social potential around important values.


    Slide45 l.jpg

    By offering diversified experiences we give the young people the possibility of interpreting everyday life, illuminating it and gradually acquiring a Gospel style of relating modelled on that of Jesus.


    Slide46 l.jpg

    From Jesus and from his fundamental relations with his Father, with himself, with others and with creation, we can draw criteria to help young people to build positive relations that give quality to their lives.

    • 79. The evangelising dimension of youth ministry, in order to be stimulating and missionary, requires planning that gives pride of place to the proclamation of the Gospel as good news for the life of every young person, not just those who frequent our educational environments.

    • Our proposal, therefore, needs to offer individualised programmes capable of responding to the different sensitivities of the young people: those who still have to hear the Gospel for the first time or to begin living as Christians again, those who have already been socialised from a religious point of view or those who are marginalised and disadvantaged.

    • In this process, we commit ourselves to take on a planning mentality and to identify ways of reaching young people where they are, to educate them to the search for meaning. We commit ourselves to a ministry of presence that guides young people to mature gradually in their confession of faith in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
