Julián Carrón visited the CL community in the Netherlands for the first time. A visit to the new school, the presentation of the book of School of Community, the questions of those who live in one of the outposts of secularization. This is what happened.
Notes from Julián Carrón's introduction and homily at the Advent Retreat of the Fraternity of St. Joseph in Pacengo (Verona).

The cry of Job, indie rock, a doctor on vacation who enters by chance, the President of the Republic... A chronicle of Meeting Lisbon by those who organized it: "We only carry four loaves and two fish".
Syria, a country which is still tightly in the grip of war and poverty. A project from this year’s campaign involves restoring life to a health system that is on its knees.
