Monthly Motto September 2018

“No one is a stranger to me”

Holy Scripture:  (Gal 3,26)

“You are all children of God.”

Impulse:

Last month we met with 130 young people from seven countries in Budapest. Maybe you were there too? In the beginning, we were strangers to each other: so many new faces and different languages. However, one scene has remained in my memory: after a few days we all sang together with the international band Gen Verde this song: No one is a stranger to me! It became clear to me that meeting the other person in an open and friendly manner is an attitude that should shape our lives. Then real relationships grow and we can value and respect ourselves and others as “children of God”. So also the experience from Budapest works in us, where strangers became friends.
