What does the Congress theme mean to you?
"Awake to Grace"The grace of God has appeared on earth bringing salvation to all (Titus 2:11). All around us, even within reach of our senses, abound stirrings of this all-encompassing presence. Yet, it is easy to miss the prompting, miss the grace hidden in the joys, the hopes, the beauty, as well as in the contradictions, pain and struggle.
"Despierten a la Gracia"
Our theme, Awake to Grace, shakes us out of our inattentiveness, our complacency. Summoned to wake up, we discover grace in places, situations, where we would not expect it at all: around us, among the littlest, the poorest, in the still small voices, in the loud clamors for change, renewal and transformation – and no less in the deepest core of ourselves where the birth of Christ unceasingly repeats itself.
