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
Frank Duff himself always carried in his heart a positive disposition of friendship to all people and he in his way really lived out those words of Our Lord, “Whatever house you enter, let your first words be: Peace to this house!”

If people find in us a spirit of genuine friendship and goodwill towards them, even if they are odd as two left feet or if they be negative souls who moan and gripe about things, we can already begin to open doors to their hearts.

Once we keep in mind that this other person—no matter how deformed or disfigured—is a child of God whom the heavenly Father loves surely we must greet them with love and peace.
Fr. Paul Churchill, Archdiocese of Dublin
