Eucharistic Youth Movement


Apostleship of prayer history
Apostleship of PrayerHistory:

The AP is born in Vals, in 1844, in times of a missionary expansion of the Church



Father gautrelet the day of the feast of saint francis xavier
Father Gautrelet, the day of the feast of Saint Francis Xavier:

« We can be apostles through prayer, offering our lives, learning to do God’s will in all things. »


The daily offering
The Daily Offering

God, our Father, I offer You my day.

I offer You my prayers, thoughts, words,

actions, joys, and sufferings

in union with Your Son Jesus’ Heart,

Who continues to offer Himself in the Eucharist

for the salvation of the world.

May the Holy Spirit, Who guided Jesus,

be my guide and my strength today

so that I may witness to Your love.

With Mary, the mother of our Lord and of the Church,

I pray especially for this month's intentions

as proposed by the Holy Father.


The Heart of Jesus

The Pope’s intentions


Today
Today

Where are we ?

In 90 countries, with over 40

million members.

The most numerous local APs :

Brazil, Philippines, Italy, Angola,

Portugal, a few other countries…


Two models
Two models :

The MOVEMENT model:

  • Parish groups,

  • Diocesan directors,

  • Regular meetings,

  • Gatherings


The SERVICE model:

  • A Church service, not a movement,

  • A spirituality for today,

  • Easy, practical, simple and profound.

  • I live my day with Jesus!


In the first model, in many places we live a situation of crisis:

Members are growing old,

there is no renewal

of the people,

nor the practices,

the numbers are going down.


We live in a world in crisis, and in a Church in crisis… But let’s not forget that the word « crisis » can mean danger and opportunity.


Not only a devotion, rather a SPIRITUALITY, crisis… But let’s not forget that the word « crisis » can mean rooted in the Daily Offering, the Eucharist and our Baptism, with devotional aspects, always optional, such as the First Fridays, Holy Hour, Consecration to the Heart of Jesus, etc.

The Apostleship of Prayer:

A spirituality that offers a way to Sanctity for the Christian of the Third Millennium.

Daily life is valued and all we do can become prayer.

AP helps us seek and find God in all things.


We find here the basic spirituality of the Church: crisis… But let’s not forget that the word « crisis » can mean

Jesus and his Heart

Prayer

The Eucharist

Church sense

Apostleship

Mission

Service


Ecclesial and at the same time very Ignatian: crisis… But let’s not forget that the word « crisis » can mean

We live an inner struggle in a world that challenges our faith. We wish to live for God and to find him in all things.

  • The AP puts our lives in the path of the Eternal King (Sp. Ex. 91),

  • We renew daily our choice for the Standard of Christ (Sp. Ex. 136),

  • We find true meaning for our lives: our vocation is to praise, reverence, and serve God our Lord , « choosing only what is most conducive for us to the end for which we are created » (Sp. Ex. 23, PF).

  • We are reminded daily of the spiritual attitude that resumes the Exercises, offering ourselves by saying « Take, Lord, and receive … » (Sp.Ex. 234).


The AP helps us find meaning crisis… But let’s not forget that the word « crisis » can mean

and unity to our lives,

and it all makes

new sense!


The Eucharistic Youth Movement crisis… But let’s not forget that the word « crisis » can mean

Our youth branch, the old Eucharistic Crusade
