Headline: VATICAN – Testimony of the Secretary General of the Pontifical Society for Missionary Childhood on the involvement of children and young people in proclaiming Christ during the missionary month
Vatican City – “Children and young people are protagonists of the missionary month and of missionary animation in the whole world. They are the young missionary disciples who evangelize, through prayer and the testimony of Jesus in schools, in their own homes, in places they frequent with their peers”. This is what was said by Sister Roberta Tremarelli, Secretary General of the Pontifical Society of Missionary Childhood, one of the four Pontifical Mission Societies which, present in more than 130 countries, works with the motto “Children evangelize children, children pray for children, children help children all over the world”. The Society, also known as the “Pontifical Society of the Holy Childhood” , proposes to accompany children, young people, adolescents, in the development of a missionary spirit, helping them to share faith and material means, especially with the most needy children.
