It is the Lord who was present amongst us

From the 23rd to the 27th March, we celebrated the REMAR Youth Easter celebrations at the Marist school in Cali, Colombia.
Remar is a youth ministry movement to promote Marist vocations in Latin America. It started in Colombia in 1977. The movement?s formation stages include a celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus during the second and third years. This was the reason for the gathering of 170 young people from different parts of the country to share their lives and their hopes in the light of the Gospel and the Pascal event.
The Remar Youth Easter was the occasion for launching the second phase of this movement for those young people who are in the post-school stage: at university or already employed.

We truly experienced a festival where the joy of young people meeting together was expressed in song and dance, through the music of Kairoi, reflection, games, the sharing of meals and places of rest, as well as being a profound experience of each of the Holy Week ceremonies.
It is the Lord!? This is the acclamation in the Gospel of John when the resurrected Jesus appears to his disciples. We can also proclaim this through the way in which we live the Easter experience. It is the Lord? who was present amongst us; in the joy of the Resurrection, we commit ourselves to live today Marcellin?s dream of making Jesus Christ known and loved.
