Love for Mary

Love is born as a response to the experience of being loved (Cf. 1 John 4:19). Therefore, ECYD Adolescents seek to love the Blessed Virgin Mary as their mother with filial affection (Cf. John 19:27), entrusting themselves to her care and intercession, and seeking to imitate her in her virtues.

“To live ECYD is to experience a charism that is then incarnated in a lifestyle and mission.
It is the joy that springs forth in the adolescents when they discover that they are loved and called by Jesus Christ;
it is the initiative and creativity enkindled inside when they know they are engaged in a great mission in the light of eternity;
it is what happens within when they understand that an authentic and attractive Christianity can be lived, thus leaving a deep imprint in today’s world;
it is the strength given by being part of a group of friends who share the same ideals, and above all their faith.”
