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
This is, in fact, the most important thing that Christianity has to offer: the possibility of entering into a relationship of friendship with God himself.

At the heart of the preaching of the kingdom is the message that God has made himself close in Jesus himself. Jesus is the kingdom, the saving presence of God. The Gospel is Jesus himself, and it embraces all that he is, says and does.

The message of the kingdom is fulfilled in the great mystery of Easter, the mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection, through which we are saved and drawn into a definitive relationship of friendship and sonship with God.

Since Easter, the method of evangelisation has essentially been to tell people what we now read in the Gospels about Jesus Christ and his saving work. To evangelise means to acquaint people with Jesus as we come to know him through the Gospels.
