Dear Bishops, Priests, Religious Brothers and Sisters and all people of Goodwill
Greetings from the IMBISA Secretariat!
IMBISA Secretariat invites you to an online session on African Youth Day, 1 November 2023 from 11h00 to 12h00 (Harare time). The theme of the gathering:
Who am I? Where am I going?
Digital migration of young people today
Young people are reminded of Christus Vivit
, where Pope Francis wrote about these questions that young people asked in the run up to the synod of 2018. ” “For many people, immersion in the virtual world has brought about a kind of “digital migration”, involving withdrawal from their families and their cultural and religious values, and entrance into a world of loneliness and of self-invention, with the result that they feel rootless even while remaining physically in one place. The fresh and exuberant lives of young people who want to affirm their personality today confront a new challenge: that of interacting with a real and virtual world that they enter alone, as if setting foot on an undiscovered global continent.”
