“Watchmen of the whole world”: a film tribute soon to premiere in Nazareth
NAZARETH – The Community of Chemin Neuf is glad to invite you to its third meeting of prayer and sharing NET FOR GOD of the year in the International Centre Mary of Nazareth on Friday December 13, 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The programme includes: a video about young people who in recent months, in Brazil, Egypt, France and elsewhere, have taken to the streets to make politicians listen to them. In Jerusalem, as of April 23, watchmen met once every two evenings, and after Summer once a week, opposite the French Consulate General, to defend family values. Without interruption !
Summary of the video: In recent months worldwide, in Brazil, Egypt, France and elsewhere, young people have taken to the streets to make politicians listen to them. Some are fighting to defend values, others to denounce abuses and unjust laws, and others to demand democracy.
These young people choose to get involved in a non-violent way for justice and truth by their public actions. They walk, they watch, stand, and sit day and night, so that people’s consciences do not fall asleep, to remind politicians of their responsibilities, to remind humanity of its inalienable foundations.
They do not leave anyone indifferent, prompting astonishment and revolt, it is the opposite: prompting hope and joy. Even if people have no direct relationship with them, in their context and in their goals; do they not have common roots in history and their origins?
All of these movements, which were born spontaneously and widely reported in social media, challenge us. They push us to reflect, training us to discern the call of the Holy Spirit, and in our own way to be watchmen.
