Released by the Dicasteries for Laity, Family and Life and for Communication, Mr Warmenhoven reflects on “three truths” of the Christian “proclamation” explained by Pope Francis in the fourth chapter of Christus Vivit (Christ is Alive).
“God loves. Christ saves. He is alive,” he says in the video. All three lead to “a fourth truth”: together with Jesus, “I am alive too.”
Mr Warmenhoven, a youth manager for the Canberra-Goulburn Archdiocese, was among a small group from Australia who joined an international delegation in Rome in June to identify ways to implement the apostolic exhortation.
Christus Vivit was written to young people and the entire world after the Synod of Bishops on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment, held in October last year.
A year after the Synod, and six months after the publication of Christus Vivit, the dicasteries launched a video project last month through social media to share the experience of Christus Vivit in the world. From now until December, every Tuesday and Thursday, two brief videos will be published.
