Jesus Youth - A Joyful Family
Often I ask Jesus Youth, “What do you find most fascinating about the movement?” “Among so many groups and organisations, how is it different?” Most often the first answers would be, “In Jesus Youth there is an intimate fellowship” or “It is a close-knit family”. I think people in the movement first think of their deep relationships. Of course, then people continue to speak about its spirituality, the six Pillars, joyful Catholic identity and the like. But often what they value most in the movement is that here they belong like in a family. Jesus Youth started with its small beginnings in Kerala and has travelled through many fruitful years, reaching out to different lands and cultures. In many countries the movement finds itself amongst a variety of other Catholic movements.
