The Journey to Holiness: Pray, Live Love!
We are a band of young people, a band of friends. Our names are Maylis, Capucine, Yenofa, Tanguy, JF and JB. Just like you, “we are called to holiness”. We are not the ones saying this - Benedict XVI reminded of this at the Cologne WYD. A few years earlier, John-Paul II had invited us to “become the saints of the third millennium”.
A Spiritual Journey
We offer you to make the self-commitment of praying daily for 21 days. On each day of the retreat, you will get to know a practical and lively text to nourish your prayer life. On the first day of the prayer program, we introduce you to a simple and deeply inspiring approach to praying. You will find authentic personal stories from today's young people, some food for meditation, and moving anecdotes on the lives of contemporary young saints. We address the prominent issues of our life as young people, in particular 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.
