More than 400 young people from Taiwan participated in the WYD 2016. Some of them, after the experience in Poland, came to Rome. A group of 11 young people accompanied by Teresita Tsai FI (junior sister) and a religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary came on August 3 to our house to have a day of retreat and visit the exhibit of Mother Candida.
They told us that in Poland they had been housed with families, and these days they were living more as a group. Here at home they had their day of prayer and reflection and shared the experience they had lived so far. After participating in the Eucharist in the church of San Leone Magno, we shared pizza with them and were treated to their songs, their joy, and a huge card in which they thanked us, the community, for hosting them.
We gave them the rosary of the canonization and the card with the relic of Mother with the prayer in Chinese, which made them very happy.
We appreciate this opportunity that they have given us to participate in a simple way in WYD 2016. Thanks.
