Breve storia dei meeting PGVR
Young people from all around the world who are working with the Redemptorists have many things in common: The love to the Redeemer. The missionary enthusiasm. The opening to the needy. The simplicity in communication. That’s why International Meetings of Redmptorist Youth are held every three years.
To mark the bicentenary of the death of St. Alfphonsus Liguori (1787 -1987), the Redemptorists have had the following idea: bring together young people from all around the world who sympathize with them and cooperate in their activities. So in PAGANI (Italy), where the mortal of St. Alphonsus rimains, from 4 to 9 August 1987 there was the First Congress of Redemptorist Youth.
The content of the discussions revolved around a major theme: "Alphonsus as a choice that can change me, young". The saint was considered in its two basic choices: Love to the Redeemer and Love to the poor. Each day of the meeting had its own theme: Alphonsus and the problems of his time; we and the problems of our lives. Alphonsus and the choice of Christ; we and the choice of Christ. Alphonsus and the poor; we and the poor.
The following meeting was proposed at EL ESPINO in Spain from 7 to 12 August 1988 to mark the conclusion of the festivities for the second centenary of the death of St. Alphonsus. The choice of location was closely linked to the overall theme of the meeting: "Mary's Magnificat" Proclaiming the Gospel to the poor. El Espino in fact is not a city or a country but a shrine that has been maiden available to young people.
Each day had a specific theme which was first presented by the mimes that nations prepared, and then discussed by the language groups in different places. Specific topics for each day were: The joy of the faith Make us be evangelized by the poor Living in the community The mission of the youth and the new evangelization of Europe
The third international meeting was held after three years in the Austrian town of EGGENBURG from 4 to 9 August 1991. The meeting was prepared by a large group of delegates from all provinces.
The general theme of the meeting was inspired on the famous words of St. Clement "Proclaiming the Gospel again in a new way" with the biblical passage of Luke 24, 13 -35 to be examined the first three days and the passage of Luke 10, 1 -9 to be considered the fourth day. Topics for each day were: Rediscover the Gospel. Make the gospel become ‘Life’ within us. Make ‘Life’? The Gospel in the world (Justice and Freedom, Third World, Ecology. . . ). My personal commitment and our common mission in today's world.
“Called to announce”. Around this theme developed the IV International Congress of Redemptorist Youth which was held in DURHAM, England, from 3 to 8 August 1994. The reflections were organized around the biblical passage of Luke 4, 16 -21 and much space was given to prayer and sharing of experiences by young Redemptorists in the different nations of Europe. The new meeting was held to give new impetus to Redemptorist Youth Vocation Ministry in Europe.
The organization was entrusted to a preparatory committee formed by young people of different nationalities and Redemptorists who met one year earlier to prepare everything to do about the meeting. The topics of each day were: The importance of the Holy Spirit The mission “Sent to bring freedom to the captives”
The fifth meeting was held in ESSEN, Belgium, from 3 to 7 August 1998. On the threshold of the third millennium, young people wanted to reflect on the invitation of Jesus: “Come and see”. The participants reflected on the situation of the Church and on their integration into society, have sought to highlight the urgent problems that are faced by Christians in order to draw some solution for the improvement of the situation and a real Christian proposal.
All the subjects concerned the Gospel: Mark 10, 46 -52: “What do you want me to do? Rabboni that I may receive my sight” John 8, 1 -11: “Who is without sin cast the first stone” Luke 10, 1: “He called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority. . . and he sent them to preach the Kingdom of God”
The sixth meeting of Redemptorist Youth was held in TORUN, Poland, from 6 to 10 August 2001. This meeting will be remembered for being the first genuinely open to all units in Europe. In previous meetings there were representatives from the East, but the political situation had made impossible the arrival of several groups.
The subjects were closely linked to the Gospel: Isaiah 43, 4: “Precious in my eyes” - Who am I? What are my priorities, my problems, my limits? A deeper look beyond appearances Luke 19, 5: “Today I must stay at your home” Christ as the cornerstone of the bridge that connects my past, my present and my future 1 Peter 2, 5: "You, the living stone" - The responsibility of the community. How and where to go? Life as a vocation.
From 14 to 19 August 2004 was held at the College Josephinum in BONN, Germany, the VII meeting of Redemptorist Youth. The leading idea was “Jesus walking with us”. The basic text was established by the Gospel of John 21, 1 -4 in which Jesus resurrected appears on the shores of the lake.
It was discussed and worked with this text in four steps: Loneliness and failure Fix your eyes on Jesus Encounter with Jesus Walking with Jesus , discipleship
The theme of the meeting of LIMERICK, Ireland, which has held from 8 to 13 August 2007 recalled the phrase “Crazy for Love” used by St. Alphonsus. He vehemently proclaimed the great love of God and wanted everyone to know that God loves us more than we can imagine.
During this meeting, to meditate on the folly of God’s love and on what this means for young Christians in Europe today, four images were used: Crib Cross Mary Eucharist
LVIV’s meeting, in Ukraine, which has held from 9 to 14 August 2010 marked a turning point in our gatherings. For the first time we moved out from the EU countries and even more in a religious province of the Eastern rite. The theme of the Congress “To be like You”, has allowed us to develop each day the following issues, connected with some biblical events: To be open like You - The Baptism of Jesus To improve like You - The Transfiguration of Jesus To be silent like You - Holy Saturday To live like You
