The Green Thread of Encounter

The Green Thread of Encounter

The horizon that opens with “Broaden your vision. Missionaries of hope and joy with the young people”, is, in itself, the bearer of an invitation to an encounter.
The encounter touches the sacred land of the other person and opens to the sensitivity that results in listening and reciprocity. The encounter interests the person, and therefore, is sought within and moves our steps towards each other, towards the acceptance of a different way of thinking, to the surprises that burst forth from existential sharing.
When we make the choice to walk with young people, to be open to new roads and new frequencies and harmonies, we discover a flow of communication connections, which reminds us of the warmth, empathy and the power of the word of Jesus
There is a closeness expressed in his compassion, in the loving kindness, in the gestures of inclusion, in granting hope to everyone. It touches the reality of the people in the encounter of their deepest anxieties. Our daily encounter with Him enables us to dialogue that mutually transforms us, gives us the ability to embark on a journey together, to the existential and geographical peripheries of today, as Pope Francis invites us.
The encounter is a green thread, filled with hope, a thread that weaves our open and reciprocal relationships and enabling to approach and lead humanity around a life project based on justice, equality, ethics, transparency, love. The encounter is the bearer of a lucid and fruitful hope that sets us in a movement in favor of life. It creates bonds of solidarity and lucidity to heal wounds that have been opened from conflict, war, violence, lack of respect for human dignity, and generates a culture of peace. An encounter is an experience of co-creation, a covenant with the Trinitarian God. From it something new is built by many hands: the Creator and us, in its full expression of an incarnate God. It is embodied in the faces of those children and young people with whom we started walking, firm in hope, anchored in genuine joy of the Gospel.
An encounter is, at the same time, horizon, journey, and destination. As a horizon, it leads us to see and embrace different realities. As a journey, it is a fabric woven of listening, dialogue, seeking, understanding, communication, and communion. As a destination, it keeps our feet walking in time to the rhythm of the steps of God. It is necessary to follow the fruitful breath of His Spirit that leads us to unexpected peripheries. "It invites us to allow ourselves to be led by the Spirit, refusing to calculate and control everything, and allowing Him to enlighten, guide and direct us where He wants. The Holy Spirit knows well what is needed in every time and at every moment” (cfr Letter to Consecrated Persons, Scrutate n.16).
