Sicily, an Italian island on the border between Europe and Africa, has for years been a crossing point for migrants, arriving in circumstances that are often dramatic. In this film we discover three reception centres located in the city of Palermo: the Astalli centre, the Arcobaleno 3P centre and the Missione Speranza e Carità. We meet migrants who have been welcomed and volunteers who have chosen to commit to welcoming others. Many different paths have led these migrants to Sicily, from a wide range of countries such as Bangladesh, Ghana and Nigeria. Through these stories, everyone will find something universal about welcome and encounter.

The Chemin Neuf Community has been present in Sicily, in Altavilla for 4 years. The community is responsible for running a house where retreats are held regularly according to the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius, with the Jesuits. In 2018-19, the community also helped to train and support volunteers at the Astalli centre.

Ce film est réalisé par la Communauté du Chemin Neuf via le réseau international de prière « Net for God ».

Intercession du mois

Lord, teach us to meet you and discover you in the faces of others. Open our hearts. Show us how you still give yourself, every day, so that we can be brothers and sisters. Reveal to us that it is also in this amazing living communion that you make yourself present among us. Lord, help us to recognise that in you each encounter can become a communion.

Parole du mois

But the man was anxious to justify himself and said to Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’. In answer Jesus said, ‘A man was once on his way down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell into the hands of bandits; they stripped him, beat him and then made off, leaving him half dead. But a Samaritan traveller who came on him was moved with compassion when he saw him. He went up to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them. He then lifted him onto his own mount and took him to an inn and looked after him. Next day he took out two denarii and handed them to the innkeeper and said “look after him, and on my way back I will make good any extra expense you have.” Which of these three, do you think, proved himself a neighbour to the man who fell into the bandits’ hands?’ He replied, ‘The one who showed pity towards him.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go, and do the same yourself.’

Luke 10, 29-30. 33 – 37
