Vie Montante Belge francophone
Christian Movement of retirees and future retirees
Come and see!
Vie Montante is an international movement present in nearly 50 countries.
Members of Vie Montante come together to share their experiences, their joys and sorrows, their concerns ...
The monthly meeting is centered on the Word and the Life.
The annual theme is proposed in a Belgian-Swiss brochure .
The quaterly magazine, Sérénité, addresses current topics, of society and sprituality, as well as the life of the movement..
The 3 pillars of VIE MONTANTE:
= Spirituality =
"You are the salt of earth" Mt 5,13
Vie Montante privileges the inner life of its members.
The deepening of the Word of Christ nourishes prayer and strengthens faith.
This direct contact with the Lord makes it possible to discover the meaning of life.
This energy boosts us and supports us in our Christian commitments.
Often a spiritual advisor accompanies these meetings.
= Commitment =
« Go, you too to my vineyard » Mt 20,6-7
Are we not those workers who work in the vineyard of the Lord?
It is the mission of every Christian.
Our pace of life allows us to engage more freely.
As witnesses of Jesus we can be in solidarity with the needs of society:
in our neighborhoods, homes, parishes, clinics ... and build our Church with happiness.
Engagement makes it possible to meet others.
For those who feel limited, prayer and testimony give them the opportunity to live in communion.
Commitment to smile gives peace and joy to those around us!
= Friendship =
« May all be one » this is the desire of Christ (Jn 17,21)
Our groups are places of fraternal friendship, where we give and receive.
Each person is unique and has a richness.
The meetings offer him a deep listening to discover himself and to realize himself.
The joy of meeting and sharing life experiences breaks the isolation that some seniors experience and allow them to express themselves in confidence.
Other annual activities such as an excursion, a recollection or a pilgrimage are occasions to meet between groups of the diocese and make new friendships.
