Christ is the light that has come into the world. When we live under this light, the true light, we make His Kingdom present.

The ECYD adolescent lives with the ardent desire for the coming of this kingdom, Christ’s kingdom.

That is why he lets Christ’s light shine on him, touching his heart, and seeking to transmit this light to others.

“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.”
