YOUNG ADULT CONFERENCE IN PARIS

Emer Gallagher and Karen Wynne attended the Paris Young Adult Conference in Paris o 25-27th November 2016 on behalf of Concilium.
On Friday they visited the Chapels of Rue du Bac and St. Vincent de Paul and later went to Mass in St. Germain des Pres Church and were surprised by the number of young people at Mass. They decided to promote the Conference after Mass. The young people were very receptive.
The venue for the Conference was Al’ Acueil Barouillere, rue Saint Jean Baptiste de la Salle. In the morning session there was a talk on St. Louis Marie de Montfort by Bro. Hubert. Questions followed, then testimonies by Emer, Karen and Alex and a video on the True Devotion. Carlito ended the session with a song. After lunch there were Chants by Carlito and a video on the history of the Miraculous Medal and discussion time. Mass followed in the Rue du Bac Chapel. Because of the Feast of the Miraculous, blessed medals were given out after Mass.

Quote of the Day
Like many of the saints it is hard to penetrate the depth of his spiritual life and not too much can be said about it. However Alfie had this deep active devotion to Mary.

He was never known to have anything but a smile and good humour in spite of the fact of travel and conditions that would have exhausted his frail body. He would renew his Legion Promise to the Holy Spirit very frequently and his bedside companions were the gospels, and St. Louis Marie’s True Devotion to Jesus through Mary. He made a point of keeping in contact with a huge number of people and aimed at writing at least 3 letters each day.

These letters, like the spiritual advice he gave, were treasured by those who received them. A few days before his death a nurse commented on the fact that he said many rosaries.

She said to him; “You are an extraordinary catholic”. His reply was;” Oh no, I am only a very ordinary catholic”.
