Sharing our Graces to the Youth:
CLC Philippines Joins the Taizé Pilgrimage of Trust Manila Meeting
by Jaymee Duran 24 February 2010From February 3 to 7, Tinnah, Amity, and I joined around 3,500 young people in the Manila Meeting of the Taizé Pilgrimage of Trust on Earth. Young people from all over Asia and other continents attended, to pray and share about their faith and life experiences with others. It was really an experience—praying for an hour or even more three times a day, being in silence with thousands of people, conversing with different people about one God, and listening to the reflections of the Taizé Brothers.

Diyos ang bukal ng buhay, ang apoy at pagmamahal.
O halina, halina, Diyos Espiritu Santo.That is the Holy Spirit moving us, giving us strength to do more. As I look back at the things that we’ve done, I am but amazed that we were able to accomplish those. I remember how Fr. Marc Raper, SJ suddenly asked me to handle parts of his workshop of around 120 participants. It was an impromptu workshop. But then after that session, the pilgrims’ reactions and feedbacks were heartwarming. I also remember Tinnah’s post on her Facebook wall saying: [caption id="attachment_503" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Amity with her workshop group"]
Ubi caritas et amor,
ubi caritas Deus ibi est.
(Where there is charity and love, God is to be found.)[caption id="attachment_505" align="aligncenter" width="224" caption="The "Friendship Image"--an icon the Taize community loves so much. "]
