HI-life 2014-2015

Pope Francis calls us to share the Good News like never before. With his words and actions, he leads us to a new relationship with Christ and calls on us to evangelize in new ways. HI-life Gatherings during 2014-2015 will encourage and equip us to respond to this call.

 “To love God and neighbor is not something abstract, but profoundly concrete: it means seeing in every person and face of the Lord to be served, to serve him concretely. And you are, dear brothers and sisters, in the face of Jesus.” (Pope Francis, Address during Visit at the Homeless Shelter “Dona Di Maria,” 5/21/13)

These words from Pope Francis can help us to reflect more deeply on how our experience of God’s love can open our hearts to solidarity with our neighbors, and move us to action.
