After campaigns such as "Vivan los padres" or "Cancelados", the Catholic Association of Propagandists (ACdP) launches a new campaign in bus shelters, subways and buses in more than 100 cities throughout Spain focusing on sadness, the most widespread spiritual disease of our time.
Last year, at this time, the campaign launched by the ACdP was focused on the hope of salvation. On this occasion, the propagandists ask the 47 million Spaniards if they are happy. A question for which the ACdP proposes two personal testimonies. Through QR codes, they share two real stories, one for "Yes" and one for "No".
Yes" leads to the history of the model and filmmaker. Pietro DitanoHe found God when he saw that his life of luxury, apparently happy, did not fulfill him. It was "an appearance of smoke" from which he emerged thanks to the sacraments and service to others. "The Lord brought me out of absolute unhappiness, which masquerades as happiness," he says.
For the "No", despite what it may seem, the story of Sonsoles also opens a door to hope. This young woman, who suffers from depression, has discovered that the Lord sustains her and accompanies her in her illness. Sonsoles is part of the 5% of Spaniards who suffer from depression and for whom God also has an answer, as this campaign reminds us.
The #JesusChristHasSavedMe Challenge
In addition, the ACdP has launched a challenge in social networks under the heading of hashtag #JesusChristHasSavedMe. Through this challenge, people are invited to share their testimony on video and challenge other friends to do the same, starting a chain to share the good news of the Resurrection. Activist and YouTuber Jordi Sabaté and priest Pablo Pich, among others, have already accepted the challenge.
