Love for the Church and the Pope

Love for the Church

Love for the Pope

Love is born as a response to the experience of being loved (Cf. 1 John 4:19).

Therefore, ECYD Adolescents seek, as a living member of the Church, to love her and collaborate in her evangelizing mission; and to love the Pope, the Vicar of Christ, by knowing and spreading his teachings and engaging in his initiatives.

“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.”
