Are We Holy?


Our Lady of the Snows parish, Prague, once again hosted a vocation encounter for young people, organized by men and women religious of the Archdiocese. The theme of the meeting, Are we saints? was in continuity with the encounters held in previous years: Are we normal? Do we belong to God? Are we brave?

The purpose of these evenings is to give young people the chance to meet the members of various religious Orders/Congregations in a more informal setting and offer them food for thought, times of dialogue and silence. The program was prepared by a team representing different religious Institutes and Movements, primarily from the Archdiocese of Prague. This year’s agenda opened with the screening of five videoclips on the theme Myths and Reality about the Religious Life, followed by a reflection on holiness. The evening concluded with a round table discussion during which the religious answered the young people’s questions.

As in previous years, this year too, Sr. Andrea, fsp, represented the Daughters of St. Paul at the event, serving as its moderator and also giving her testimony to the group.
