The Biblical Musical

On Friday and Saturday evening we will present to you two Biblical Musicals which have come from the heart and the effort of some boys and girls of the Community who listened to the Word of God to see their life again in the light of the Risen Jesus. In the past years various musicals have been put on show, among which “From the darkness to the light”, "The mysteries of light", "Do not be afraid!", "Credo".

This year the musical "FOLLOW ME ... we are witnesses" will have it's premier debut during the Festival. It retraces particular moments in the history of salvation reenacted through the life of the apostle Peter, staged with beautiful and moving choreography, conceived by the youths themselves of the Community.

What's new?

- The choir is ready to amaze you with the Festival Anthem and other new and joyful songs;
- The Adoration Chapel will focus on the theme of Jesus' call to Peter, "Follow me", with a new painting;
- In "Mary's Garden" there will be a photographic exhibition entitled "WHAT A BEAUTIFUL STORY! - 35 years of Comunità Cenacolo" to give praise to the Lord for what has been brought to life in the 35-year history of the Cenacolo Community: from the first "yes" of Mother Elvira to the present day...
- Every year at the Festival of Life we have been blessed with the presence of some relics of saints to unite earth and heaven in a single prayer of praise and intercession to the God of Life. This year the relics of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, the Saint of Carmel of Lisieux much loved by all and especially by the youth, and her parents, Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, the first married couple to be canonized in the history of the Church, will be with us. The relics are arriving from the Sanctuary of Lisieux and will be exhibited in the Chapel of Perpetual Adoration to be venerated by the faithful, and during the solemn Masses they will be brought to the area of the celebration, next to the altar. We thank these "Saints" for coming among us, and we can begin now invoking their intercession for all the participants in the 2018 Festival of Life.

... and many more surprises. We are expecting all of you!
