"Francis of Assisi, a young man who meets the poor"

Youths of Central Europe reflect on the testimony of St. Francis today

 
printable version

On last 12 October, at the invitation of the Community of Sant'Egidio, youths from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary met in Brno, the second largest city of the Czech Republic, to learn more about the figure of St. Francis, asking themselves how his testimony questions the life of today’s young generations.

It was the third meeting, after the one in Budapest and Bratislava, that gathered young people from these countries. Throughout the day, they reflected on the words and the gestures of St. Francis and, especially, on his encounter with the poor. In the evening, everyone gathered for common prayer, which was also attended by a small number of homeless people with whom the young communities have long woven a friendship.
