Festa della Vita 2020 – Theme
Death, tears, pain… compassion, drawing near, Resurrection!
The theme of the Festival of Life 2020 is the phrase spoken by Jesus “… I tell you, arise!” (Lk 7:14), taken from the Gospel of Luke.
Jesus sees the excruciating pain of a mother, feels compassion for that woman, approaches her dead son, touches the coffin and restores the boy’s life, returning him to his mother alive.
It is the miracle that has happened in the lives of many of us who were welcomed to the Cenacolo: the pain of parents and friends in seeing the “death” that we had in our hearts moved the heart of Christ with compassion and He drew near to us; He held out his hand to us and offered us this path of Resurrection.
But the struggle between death and Life is a daily battle: each of us has a piece of death in our heart that must be revived today.
He will look us in the eyes, hold out his hand, lift us up and He will resurrect us to a new life!
Resurrected children who restore joy to their parents’ hearts!
Resurrected parents who restore joy to their children’s hearts!
A resurrected people who praise and glorify the God of Life together!
We are waiting for you, we are waiting for each one of you so that we can experience the joy of being a part of this family… of the resurrected!
