Fourth Carmelite Youth Meeting – Peru

Fourth Carmelite Youth Meeting – Peru

A Carmelite Youth meeting was held from August 4th through 6th in Ica, Peru, in which 130 young people participated. They were called together by Saint John of the Cross under the slogan “Reveal your presence.”

Rediscovering the person of the Holy Father was a rich grace. The young people learned about his life and his message and broached his poetry and spirituality. Presentations ran the gamut from simple talks to reading his works directly. It allowed them to discover the message of joy and hope that our father Saint John of the Cross offers and opened a door to fall more in love with God and grow in human love.

The meeting closed with a solemn Mass at the feet of the Lord of Luren in the provisional chapel in which the Discalced Carmelites of Ica celebrate parish life since the earthquake of 2017.
