« Rejoice with me » (Luke,15,6)
Since his encounter with the first apostles, Jesus calls us to go off: “Come and see!”. In the heart of the Eurojam, a pilgrimage will be proposed to everyone, over all a day, outside of the camp. God calls us and we follow him. But he calls us, above all, to led us find by him, to led us guide, to led us love, and that with an absolute trust. In company of Saint Thérèse, missionary Carmelite without borders, and of Robert Schuman, founder of Europe and constructor of peace among the peoples, we are going to Lisieux. The high point of this day will take place in the basilica of this small town which has become a centre radiating all over the world.
The meaning of our pilgrimage approach is simple: to enter into the secrets of the Sacred Heart of Jesus who is only “love and mercy”, as Saint Thérèse said. That is to reconcile ourselves with God and to reconcile among ourselves. In short, being a bright sign of peace. Concretely, the sacrament of reconciliation will be proposed at the end of the day, during a great celebration which will gather thousands of guides and scouts. This will also be the occasion to led come to broad daylight, in a very concrete way, a sign of unity among our countries, 100 years after the World War where our peoples have torn each other apart.
Finally, for those who want, a step of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus will be possible: That means simply to say Yes to the Christ and to His love, concretely in my life.
How to prepare in the best possible way while waiting for the pilgrimage: love, and show it by your way of living. Led your heart and the heart of Jesus already join each other.
