SSCC Missionary Week (WYD) II

    Friday, July 19, all the young people worked together in groups toshare their experiences during the week and during the visit in different parishes in the area. In the afternoon, there were workshops and dance. And at night, the young "missionaries" had an hour of silent and quiet adoration. The day ended with a "cultural evening". This time it was Peru who has shown their popular culture to all the inhabitants of Patrocinio. The plaza was full.


 On Saturday, July 20, all young "missionaries" gathered outside the parish of Father Damien of Patrocinio. After the prayer, led by Vinicius, everyone has begun the road to the shrine of "Our Lady of Aparecida of Martins". It is a shrine to Mary, located 17 km from Patrocinio. Despite the distance and the length of the queue of people walking (at least 800 meters), all young missionaries came to the Sanctuary. There was just a stop before reaching the sanctuary. 



  In the sanctuary, each one prayed personally. After this time the rosary was prayed in the different languages ??of the group of "missionaries" (French, Spanish, Portuguese, Bahasa, Lingala, Polish, German ...). As one of the brothers said, the Virgin Mary is truly "multilingual". She understands and intercedes for all the nations of the world. The day ended with a Mass presided by Father Pedro Pablo Achondo.











  Tomorrow Sunday 21, after the catechesis, the Bishop will preside over the Eucharist with us and we will take road to Rio de Janeiro.

 It has been a week of living together, of mutual exchange and fellowship. The young missionaries have understood that the Church belongs to them. They are the first protagonists of the life and mission of the Church. They understood that Christ calls them to build, from his youth, a Church of love and unity.

  We hope that the week of WYD in Rio de Janeiro will be lived very well, after this so call "sscc missionary week".
