There are still three months until Christmas and the gen4 are already preparing it! In many parts of the world the children of the Focolare Movement are beginning to organize the project "Bring Jesus back to Christmas".
Download here the poster to make the initiative and the destination of the contributions that can be collected through it, known.
Inspired by the words of Pope Francis, in his speech at Christmas last year - "May our hearts not be as closes as the houses of Bethlehem were" (Pope Francis, Vatican, 12.25.2017) - the gen4 invite everyone to "open the heart " to welcome of all those who are not welcomed and suffer because of the lack of peace, of justice, because they have no home, because they are forced to leave their land ...
The goal of this project, which started in 1996 and is repeated every year since then, is to bring to Christmas its true meaning: Jesus who is born for every person, Jesus who comes for us ... and who is not accepted, yesterday as today. The children make plaster little statues of the Baby Jesus and offer them on the street. The contributions collected are then used for the most needy.
