Questions: “What does the JMJ do?”
“What have you learned?”
“Where you live is there much interest in religion?”
“I have heard that the theme of JMJ 2011 is to be ingrained in Christ. What does this mean?”
Situations: They approach us to discuss religion.
They ask us for information when arriving at a monument, museum, restaurant, etc.
On public transit or at a park
On the way to an event
They approach us to discuss religion.
Hello, how are you. It’s wonderful to be in Madrid. We have come to testify to Jesus.
Hello. Are all these people here for the JMJ?
Yes, they are. And it is incredible, as much Christian young people. Have you already accepted Jesus?
Yes. I am Christian, and trying to follow Christ’s example is not easy in these times.
Good. You must trust the power of the Holy Spirit.
He is wonderful. I am very excited to be here with so many companion pilgrims here. You feel that it is like one brotherhood and that you really matter to Jesus.
I agree. What have you learned at the JMJ?
I am enchanted to see young people with spiritual restlessness. Here is a gift of welcome from Madrid. Here is something that you can take home with you. I believe you will like it.
It’s my pleasure. It’s nice to meet you. By the way, my name is Pablo (extend hand).
I’m Miguel. Hmmm. “Jesus … His birth, his life, his death” (reading the magazine)
It’s a good subject, would you agree? It is an impressive summary of Jesus’ life. It will surprise you.
It seems interesting.
It’s been great getting to know you Miguel. I have enjoyed chatting with you. All the best.
They ask us for directions to a site
Pardon me. Do you know where is the Casa Encendida?
Sure, it is in the Ronda de Valencia, I’m not sure of the number, but it’s about 900 metres from here. Look, I’ll show you on the map. Are you visiting here in Madrid?
Yes, I have come for the JMJ.
It seems like a great event. Okay, we are here in Plaza de Atocha, take the Ronda de Atocha, you follow by Ronda de Valencia and you’re there. By the way, my name is Daniel.
I am Manuel.
And how is it going at the JMJ?
Good, the subject is Ingrained and Built-up in Christ. We should have a Christian life and speak of God to others.
That is not easy nowadays, right?
It isn’t easy, but this is where the holy spirit comes in. We are celebrating the Christian spirit and testifying to our faith.
Is there much interest in religion where you live?
Not much, but events like this inspire young people (and others too). It is very edifying to see them united to do God’s will.
I am glad to meet somebody with a sincere interest in spiritual things. I share that interest. See here, I would like for you to accept a welcome gift to Madrid. I am sure that it help you in your desire to serve God.
Good… thanks. “The Bible and its Message”. Thanks!
I hope you enjoy La Casa Encendida.
