A large group of young people from our SAFA schools in Uruguay, together with Brother Javier González, attended the World Youth Day held recently in Panama.

Encounters in the street… in the subway… everywhere. Living the faith at every moment and prayer meetings or celebrations with thousands of young people from all over the world. Without understanding each other but tuning in to the same thing. Feeling like family. Listening to the Lord’s Prayer in many languages, understanding but not understanding. We live the Nazareth in host families. We felt welcomed as we imagined that Jesus Mary and Joseph would receive the stranger. And the proclamation of the Gospel in the street. Through joy the communication, the embrace, the greeting and God bless you with all.

A few days but very intense for everyone.
