"When you go back home, in your families, in your communities,
enriched by the experience of these days,
let Jesus’ words re-echo in you: « I am with you always,
to the end of the age” (Mt, 28, 20).
Supported by his grace, try to fulfil your commitment
with a renewed enthusiasm; thus scouting will be for you
« a means of sanctification within the Church »
that will favour and encourage «a more
intimate union between concrete life and your faith ».
"

To put love in all you do

Paola Di Bartolomeo

Today, we had the pleasure to talk with Cristiana, the head of service at several red points, including Monte Cassino, about her service not only during Euromoot but also during her scout life.

– What does service mean to you?

“Service is life. It has no boundaries, no end in itself. It’s a way of being in which you find yourself embedded and in which you grow up during the scouting journey, not limiting it to scouting, but doing it right and bringing it into everyday’s life.”

– What does  “Parate viam Domini” mean in the service?

“It is an instrument by which we prepare the ways of the Lord. We are the means by which we realise them. We must always pass on the message that before us someone else thought of leaving a testimony, like St. Benedict for Monte Cassino, I do not think he expected to see today all this beauty right here; as well as before us, other leaders were in our place. It is an instinctive “yes” that we say to service despite work and the few holidays. You can’t give it up.”

– Serving is Love?

“It is such a deep love that it cannot be understood. It is precisely a modus vivendi, a lifestyle in which you cannot but put love in what you do. We are preparing the ways of the Lord, and God is Love.”
