Witnesses of hope.

“I don´t know how to explain to you what I felt these days… but I can´t remain silent about it. I can´t be silent to pain, anger and outrage… to the injustice I witnessed with my own eyes. I can´t remain quiet after I discovered that the same humanity is just as loved by God. This gave me the courage to start anew and consider the pilgrimage as the journey of a daughter of the Lord. A daughter among many, forming part of one humanity whose home is the world.  Guided by this enlightening message full of hope, we’re capable of going beyond walls and borders.”

This is how a young woman described her 2017 Melilla-Nador Easter experience. A community experience organized during the Pascal Triduum by the Religious of Mary Immaculate and the Society of Jesus for more than thirty young people from around Spain.

We want Easter wants to be an experience for young people who wish to set out on this life journey and let themselves be part of a bigger community. An experience also to those who and to create a community that shares life, prayer and celebration, while being ready to change their own perspective, open their eyes and meet Jesus. Ultimately, Easter is an experience to live with Jesus, repeat his gestures, look at the world through his eyes and accompany him along the way of the cross to discover a love that goes beyond any limit or border.

The slogan of the experience was “We are sons and daughters of a pilgrim whose home is the world”. Our identity as Christians is based on following Jesus throughout his life as a pilgrim. A follow-up that moves us to the meeting and dialogue, to the desire to uninstalling ourselves, to leave our own house to discover our home in the world.

It was a real gift to celebrate Easter with the Melilla and Nador catholic communities and meet with real witnesses of hope and resurrection.
