.Together for Europe Day.
.9th MAY 2021.
“Only a few dreamt to see a united Europe. Now, this has become the hope of many. Today, it has become a necessity for all”. (Konrad Adenauer, one of the Founding Fathers of the EU).
May 9 is Europe Day. At a time of marked by the pandemic, the international experience of Together for Europe has proved to be important as never before. Through the friendship between all the Movements and their collaboration to help the needy, to safeguard the environment and to promote peace, ‘Together’ has become ever more a sign of hope.
We are all called to be protagonists in our daily life. It’s not difficult to start. Each morning, let us ask ourselves: today, to whom can I show my love, concretely and through prayer?
To take care of our neighbours, our colleagues, the refugee families, the old people, the sick and children is a social vocation with planetary dimensions: acting locally, while thinking globally.
In marking Europe Day, we ought to involve the greatest number of persons possible so that this Day may result in a Europe that is united, with a stronger cohesion.
Technology offers us the possibility to meet virtually all over Europe, and the mutual sharing done during these meetings is quite enriching.
Below, the young adults are already sharing their opinions about Europe through video clips.
For the third year running, even his year, a prayer journey of six weeks has been prepared: it starts on March 28, 2021 and ends on May 9, Europe Day.
This is an invitation to pray, to live and to witness together our faith in God and our Christian values. The texts, which have been prepared by various groups in France and Italy, can be downloaded from down below.
