Do you want to discover God in your daily life?
Emmanuel Youth – this is the answer ;).
What is Emmanuel Community in general?
“Emmanuel” is “God with us” in our daily life.
Vocation: It is an international Catholic community of lay men and woman, including those committed in celibacy for the Kingdom, and of priests who work together in the world serving the Church’s mission through Adoration, Compassion and Evangelisation. Community was founded by Pierre Goursat and Martine Laffitte in 1972 in France. Heart of Community is Paray-le-Monial, which is noted for the apparitions of Christ to St. Margaret Mary, in which He revealed to her ‘this Heart which has so loved men’.
Status: An International Public Association of the Lay Faithful of Pontifical Right
Presence: 57 countries worldwide. The greatest numbers of members include: France, Rwanda, Germany, Belgium. Check Youths groups in Emmanuel Community in Europe:
Missions and projects: are aimed at couples, families, young people, single people, those retired and anyone who wants to strengthen their faith and commit to bearing witness of Christ. But also to men and woman who are far away from the Church.
Pope Benedict XVI, speaking to leaders of Emmanuel Community on 3rd February 2011 said:
“Dear friends, the profound grace of your Community comes from Eucharistic Adoration. From this Adoration is born compassion for all and from this compassion is born the thirst to evangelize […]. An authentically Eucharistic life is a missionary life. In a world that is often bewildered and that seeks new reasons for living, Christ’s light must be brought to all. Be zealous Gospel Missionaries amidst the men and women of today, sustained by a life that has been radically taken over by Christ! May you thirst to proclaim the word of God!”
