Foresteria CITTADELLA DOMENICANA in Florence
In a spirit of communion, our religious community - Dominican Sisters Union St. Thomas Aquinas - opens up to welcome young people who want to share with us a stretch of their journey, putting at their disposal what we have: spaces of silence for the study and prayer, time for listening, dialogue and spiritual accompaniment, the possibility of participating in community life through a more or less prolonged hospitality, the richness of a tradition of broad faith. We would like our house to become:
· An opportunity for those who, in this time laden with "things to do", feel the need to allow themselves a break in a context that favors silence, study and prayer, not to escape daily commitments, but to rediscover the fuller meaning;
· A space open to the encounter, in which to grow together, through the web of interpersonal relationships, listening, dialogue and fraternal sharing, on an adult journey of faith;
· A place where the barriers and mutual fears that often keep young people away from religious communities are overcome, conditions of mutual knowledge and authentic exchange are realized, so that everyone can be himself and become a source of enrichment for the other ;
· A place where even young people who say they are far from a horizon of faith, but believe in the contemplative dimension of life and in the beauty of comparison, can feel at home.
