What a great idea to celebrate Christmas and the end of another Year!
A group of young volunteers together with a group of Augustinian Sisters, spent three days living in community spirit, while offering their service to others. The theme of this experience was: Dawn Seekers. Young people, who are willing to grow in loving, mature adults, are called to be Dawn Seekers. Dawn is the beautiful moment when the sun rises after the dark night. As Christians, we live by the hope of Dawn. Jesus came to the world as a baby to lift our darkness and fill our hearts with light and joy. His light made us see the Beauty of the Loving face of God, who never fails us. But Jesus comes again and again, in every single moment of our life. Being Dawn Seekers means having the courage and patience to wait for God in our darkness. In Christianity, Jesus is likened to the Sun, which gives light to the world. Dawn is the moment of encounter with Jesus, who comes to save us from our sadness, by showing us how much we are loved, and how beautiful we really are. This is the love and light which moves us to serve others with joy.
The volunteers offered their service to the Carmelite Priory in Mdina, by helping out in clearing some rooms which will be used, among other things, for the project Hwawar u Fjuri, which intends to integrate immigrants with Maltese people. The friars at the Carmelite Priory, serve the Cor Unum Volunteers, through liturgy, spiritual formation and also by providing a place to live in during these wonderful experiences.
