A St. Josemaría stand at “Find yourself, you are the Church,” Chile

“Find yourself, you are the Church,” is an initiative organized by the parish of St. John the Apostle, in Vitacura, Chile. With about ten thousand young people attending, it took place on Saturday, September 29, from 11 am until the closing Mass at 8 pm. Explanatory talks were given on various topics related to Catholic faith and morality.

Several young volunteers looked after the stand featuring “the saint of ordinary life,” as Pope John Paul II referred to St. Josemaria Escrivá. Explanatory material was given to those who asked for it with information about the teachings of St. Josemaría and the social initiatives born in Chile under the inspiration of his message. “It was a very enriching experience,” said Tamara Constanzo, a student of education at the University of the Andes.
