According to these words above of Mother Mary of the Apostles, the European Lay Salvatorian meeting 2019 took place at Horrem (July,11 – 14 2019). Participants from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Spain and one Salvatorian sister from the US shared a few days of prayers, discussions, thoughts, reflections and a lot of good humor. Some of the highlights were
a Rosary made by tea candles, where each one was invited to bring in his/her thanks, requests or simple thoughts of personal importance.
a tale of reflection about how we could change the face of our world with easy means.
a little view on mission projects in India and Sri Lanka.
a visit of the cathedral of Cologne and some other interesting romanic churches which mirrors the long history of Christianity in this area.
a very contemplative inspiring Vesper and Eucharist at the Monastic Fraternities of Jerusalem.
a visit of the roots of Mother Mary of the Apostles at Myllendonk and Neuwerk.
and of course the readings and gospels of each day …
Unfortunately, the time passed too quickly but the spiritual bags of the participants got filled very well and so this wonderful event will still accompany us in our minds over a long time into the future.
