Youth strives for Holiness

  • What Jesus has done for you! He went unto death. He gave everything. He fell in love of you to the point of forgetting itself. I love you and I really loves you. This is why I propose to you an adventure, a great adventure that every young person should take, and you have to undertake yourself. That great adventure is personal, intimate, irreplaceable knowledge of Jesus Christ.
    Fr. Carlos Buela, IVE Founder
  • We must in fact show which Paul Claudel says so beautifully: "The youth has not been made for pleasure, but for heroism" Therefore, we must convince ourselves that we are all called to heroism wherever God puts us. It is not enough to be more or less good, you must prepare yourselves to possess the virtues to a heroic degree."
    Fr. Carlos Buela, IVE Founder
