The Journey to Holiness: Pray, Live Love!

21 days of prayer, advice, and receiving insight from saints to put Christ at the center of your life!


Who Are We, and Why Join Our Retreat?

We are a group of young people, a group of friends. Our names are Maylis, Capucine, Yenofa, Tanguy, J.F and J.B. 

Just like you, we are called to holiness. We are not the ones saying this - Benedict XVI reminded us all of this at the Cologne WYD. 

A few years earlier, John-Paul II enjoined us to become the saints of the third millennium.

A Spiritual Journey

We offer you to make a commitment to praying every day for 21 days. On each day of the retreat, you will be offered a practical and lively text to nourish your prayer life. On the first day of the prayer program, we will introduce to you a simple, but deeply inspiring approach to prayer. 

Throughout this prayer program, you will discover real, personal stories from the young people of today, some food for meditation, and moving anecdotes on the lives of contemporary young saints. We will discuss the important themes of our life as young people, such as purity, friendship, critical life choices, and family.

Prayer from the novena

A prayer of Mother Theresa

Help me to spread Thy fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Thy spirit and love. Penetrate and possess my whole Return to being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus. Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be a light to others.
