“If we want to lead someone, we have to first lead ourselves,” Father Georg Rota, LC, said as he began his talk on leadership to the young men present. “To do that, we need to identify our strengths and weaknesses, accept them, and make the most of them. Our society needs real men: men who can find their vocation, live it and inspire others for the good. Men who lead and bring others along through their example. ”
A total of 21 young men met at the end of November in the novitiate of the Legionaries of Christ in Neuötting-Alzgern. The weekend’s program included three sessions of cross fit. Cross fit is a physical training method that combines weight lifting, sprinting, body-weight exercises and gymnastics. The goal is to develop in different fitness disciplines: stamina, strength, agility, speed, skill, balance, coordination and accuracy.
The spiritual fitness program also included prayer together, the Holy Mass and Eucharistic Adoration. In addition, team workshops motivated the young men to think about their goals in life, and gave valuable formation on how they can be realized in everyday life.
In the breaks and during meals, the participants spent time with the novices. On the Feast of Christ the King, they joined many other Regnum Christi members to participate in the celebration in Bergen, Germany.
