The St Frances Cabrini Young Adults Group presents a Summer 2019 study program of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation: Christus Vivit. Join the Young Adults at any or all of the sessions planned.
The Study Group kicks off June 19 and will also gather on June 26, July 10, July 17 and July 24. Sessions begin at 7:00 PM with Evening Prayer followed by Discussion at 7:30 PM and a Social at 8:30 PM. We welcome new members ages 18 to 39.
Pope Francis writes: “With great affection, I address this Apostolic Exhortation to all Christian young people.It is meant to remind you of certain convictions born of our faith, and at the same time to encourage you to grow in holiness and in commitment to your personal vocation. But since it is also part of a synodal process, I am also addressing this message to the entire People of God, pastors and faithful alike, since all of us are challenged and urged to reflect both on the young and for the young. Consequently, I will speak to young people directly in some places, while in others I will propose some more general considerations for the Church’s discernment.
I have let myself be inspired by the wealth of reflections and conversations that emerged from last year’s Synod. I cannot include all those contributions here, but you can read them in the Final Document. In writing this letter, though, I have attempted to summarize those proposals I considered most significant. In this way, my words will echo the myriad voices of believers the world over who made their opinions known to the Synod. Those young people who are not believers, yet wished to share their thoughts, also raised issues that led me to ask new questions.”
