Among the men and women from any time that have found out “the treasure” of their lives there were some special boys who left a luminous trail in our Community. They had crumbled to pieces after a life full of mistakes and sorrow, they were sad and desperate .But they believed seriously in God,in friendship and praying before Jesus they discovered the great value of their lives.
In the Community they have met God,they have followed Him till the end never turning back.They became witnesses of Light and Hope for those who shared the walk from “darkness to Light”.

They are “our Saints”,the Cenacolo in heavens that celebrates with the Father and intercedes with all those youth who are still sad and lost,far from God’s Love.
