Prayer vigil for disabled and sick to be held in Madrid to prepare for WYD

.- A prayer vigil with young disabled people, the sick and volunteers will be held in Madrid on Dec. 20 as part of the preparations for World Youth Day 2011. The vigil will take place in the parish church of the Patronage of St. Joseph.

The organizers said they will “reassert faith in Christ’s love” at the meeting, SIR News reports.

“We would also like to draw the attention of the Church and society so as to remove barriers, as much architectural as mental, to the full social inclusion of young people with different needs and conditions. Also, we would like to celebrate the values of youth, which are not limited to agility, physical strength, beauty, fame or social skills. Such values include devotion, solidarity, the ability to love, commitment and above all the deeply-rooted dignity of all people as God’s Sons, made in His resemblance.”

To promote the meeting, diocesan delegations of the Ministry of Health, Childhood and Youth are cooperating with organizations and movements of disabled people and Christian volunteers in health care
