"Emmanuel, God with us…"
This was the 5th time -an event which takes place every second year- that the local pastoral youth movement around Ploërmel, at the very heart of Brittany, France, enacted a living Christmas crib. This year, it was on Saturday 10 December at Loyat… as at Bethlehem 2000 years ago. Lots of people answered to the invitation: the church was crowded with 500 people or so!
This year, the Pastoral youth movement prepared a scenario with the Holy Family as the linking theme. “The message transmitted by the Holy Family is first and foremost a message of faith. In Mary and Joseph family life, God is really at the centre and that in the person of Jesus”, Pope Francis said again and again. This was what the youth wanted to revisit anew in a fresh inventive way. A beautiful experience for all those who had followed suit: children, young people and adults…
Once more, the DHS Family of Loyat took an active part: playing as intermediaries at the town-council level, delivering leaflets in the surroundings, answering the phone to find a solution to the last minutes problems. An intense moment at the approach of Christmas, a beautiful intergeneration commitment!
