“What path does your life follow? Come and discover it.” This was the invitation that the young people who participated in the Motus Christi welcomed in their hearts. The meeting was held in Iquitos, Peru, from October 12 to 14. The participants, coming from different areas and hamlets of the city, lived pleasant moments joining their life experiences with those of Christ. The question that guided the retreat was: What is the most important thing in your life?

On Sunday the young people expressed their impressions after the retreat. It was evident the joy of having shared in a family environment, and the willingness to improve and live every moment of their lives next to Christ, through the Gospel, which they received on the first day.

 Some parents participated in the mass of the last day and in the lunch together with their children, sharing the cake gifted by one of the mothers. After lunch, a brief artistic atheneum was held, in which the youth expressed their talents, their creativity, and what this retreat meant to them, through posters and images.
