Today our house here in Yogyakarta was full of young people as the members of the Magis09 group came for their monthly meeting.  Magis is the name given by the Jesuits to their formation programme for those young people who wish to be involved in the World Youth Day movement.  In Yogya, this group is run by three of our sisters: Beta, Inez and Irene.  The group who met in our house today has been running since October 2008 and it will finish in August 2009.  Through the course of this programme the Magis09 members have had input on prayer and Ignatian Spirituality and on ways of connecting this to their lives.  They have also had monthly spiritual direction.   Today’s theme was “Finding God in the Market Place.”  Input was given by Fr Wiryono SJ, Rector of Sanata Dharma University, Yogyakarta.   It is amazing to see how these young people have grown in their relationship with God and as Christian leaders as a result of this process.
