As one of the fruits of World Youth Day, a Motus Christi will take place this Sunday, April 7, in the parish of Christ the Son of God in Panama City during the whole day dedicated especially to young people. It will be given by our brothers José María López, Rosario de Rivas and Santiago Acosta. They all come from Ecuador because although José María López resides in Rome, he is on an apostolic journey in Ecuador.
This new Motus Christi in Panama is one of the fruits that the participation in the last WYD has left for the Institution, which had as its first consequence the visit to the Presidency of the Institute of the Archbishop of Panama, Monsignor José Domingo Ulloa, last February 18th. We ask the intercession of our Founding Father so that this Motus allows the conversion and the encounter with Christ of many people.
The addressees are especially the young people of the parish of Christ the Son of God, which welcomed the group of idente pilgrims and with which very important bonds of friendship are being created, both with the parish priest and with the families, who are the ones who gave lodging to all our pilgrims and with whom strong bonds of friendship were established. Among these families, there are parish leaders like Alexis Jiménez, doctor and father of four children, who from the beginning was enthusiastic about the idea of the Motus Christi and has been the one who has promoted and made the steps before the parish priest, along with some of the young people who were volunteers in WYD. Of course, God the Father will pay them with immense blessings for their generosity and support for our Institution.
