Practising our spirituality and solidarity

Bursting with energy, this was the moment of animation of the third and fourth day of the International Meeting of Young Marists, with their dynamic synchronization of movement and song. Naturally, it was impossible to miss out the singing of the Hymn "Weaving Life." 

In the course of these days, the participants were able to  study spirituality in depththrough the testimony of the two congregations of Marist Sisters. There was an opportunity to share with the Sister Superior General of the Marist Sisters, Grace Ellul, on how silence can be so rewarding for life. 

The young people also learned to know more about the work of solidarity  carried out by the Marist Missionary Sisters, listening to the inspirational Sister Georgeanne Marie Donovan, Superior General of the Sisters, and the experience of Sister Jhorna Gomes. 

The meeting with the Marist Sisters of both branches helped to motivate the 180 young people of the four Marist branches who participated in the experience of solidarity in different parts of the City of Guatemala: Escuela Marista, Centro Educativo H. Moises Cisneros, Casa Alianza, Ciudad Anini as well as the Hogar y Casa de abuelitos "San José" Villa de Emaús. 

On Friday night, the young people took part in "Marists got talent", where they were able to show their artistic abilities in music and the traditional dance of their countries and regions; as well as theatricalproductions.
