Camille's editorial of April 13, 2022: A spiritual rooting

“Our faith shows us the need for spiritual rooting in order to be able to speak to today's society and be able to build tomorrow's society. »

This sentence was pronounced by Laurent Landete, the director general of the Collège des Bernardins, which currently hosts an exhibition on Notre-Dame de Paris.

From April 7 to July 17, explore the history of the cathedral using augmented reality. From its construction to the fire that devastated it in 2019, through many historical events that it has witnessed and set.

There was no better place than the Collège des Bernardins to receive this incredible exhibition, completely free of charge. A place which, like the cathedral, evokes the faith of those who were there before us.

This is also what the Church of Saint Mary of Al-Tahira, the largest church in Iraq, evokes.

Sunday Christians gathered around this church during the Palm Sunday procession. Quite a symbol for this city that once fell into the hands of the Islamic State.

Discover the magnificent documentary “Brother” released in theaters last November under the SAJE Distribution banner, and which is now available on DVD and VOD !

This documentary film follows in the footsteps of Brother François, a young French engineer who left everything to live in homespun robes and sandals among the Franciscans of the Bronx, in the United States, in the Newark ghetto. A man with deep spiritual roots who dedicates his life to taking care of others.

Today's editorial concludes with the situation of Christians in Nigeria, who because of their spiritual roots are victims of severe persecution.

Overnight Monday to Tuesday, in Nigeria's predominantly Christian state of Benue, an attack left at least 25 dead.
