Chronicles of an Invitation to Life
Volume 6
The Hope of Youth is the sixth volume of interviews given by
Yvonne Trubert to Livre d’Invitation à la Vie, a periodical of this The Hope of Youthassociation. Through themes such as Communication, Youth,
Terrestrial Roots, Celestial Origins and Intelligence, Yvonne Trubert
Chronicles of an Invitation to Lifeinvites us to follow a path of inner transformation.
By inviting us to encounter ourselves and others, Yvonne incites us to
conversion, that is, to a change in state of mind, so that love and joy Volume 6
become the outward signs of our faith. To the young people whom
she incites to become “generators of consciousness,” she assures:
“We all need each other. We cannot put children and young people
apart from the adult world. We need your prayers to overcome the
deprivations of this world of madness.” Through her example, she
creates a bridge between generations: “Adults should know that
their only fault is to have ceased being a child.
As long as you remain child-like, joyful, happy, and you retain the
power to love, then old age does not reach you. But the day you take
yourself seriously and sit comfortably somewhere, then old age will
rope you in. Youth is not counted in years; it is lived in the spirit.”
Since 1976, Yvonne Trubert decided to devote
herself to others by listening and providing comfort.
In 1983, with the help of friends, she founded an
association called Invitation to Life, also called IVI,
which was recognised as an association of general
interest. Through her actions and her writings, she
continued to spread hope in France and worldwide
until her passing in August of 2009.

7Foreword


“No one has greater love than this,
to lay down his life for those he loves.”
John, 15 -13

Let us lift up our hearts to the right height!


A storyteller of souls, Yvonne Trubert devotes her life to
others by spreading the message of Christ’s love, as given to
us by the Gospels.

She proposes following the path of faith through the practice
of Christian prayer – the rosary – as a path of inner
transformation. By inviting us to encounter ourselves and
others, she encourages us to convert, that is, to change our
frame of mind, so that love and joy become the outward signs
of our faith!

The path of faith requires freedom. It is difficult. It demands
that we get rid of all that clutters us up by questioning what we
believe we are and what we are not. There is no challenge that
lies beyond our capacity to deal with it. Everything must be
transformed so that we can love others just the way they are.

Faith invokes self-denial and humility, which are values that
bring us to the bedside of others, the better to serve God.
Recognised by the French government as an organization in
the general interest, the association "Invitation to Life", which
Yvonne Trubert founded, makes solidarity its banner call and
restores fundamental meaning to life. Yvonne carries high the
flag of living faith. I take my hat off to her!

9At every moment, we are the creators of our lives. Only with
a present that is liberated from our past can we build a broad
future with large, unobstructed pathways. Thus, every present
moment becomes an eternal starting anew. Everything is
movement. Every second, we can choose – or not – to take
God’s hand with abandon to traverse our obstructed lives.

This trust transforms everything and turns the attics of our
lives into flowered gardens.
Since happiness is at our feet, why wait to feel better
elsewhere? Why do we need to see to believe? The mystery of
faith is believing without seeing!

When we say that everything is a mess and we fight our
paradise, when we say that the world is wrong, we flounder
and then give up!

The world is all of us: you and me!
The world begins with our self!
Do we still have the option to wait with arms crossed
for the world to come to us?
Isn’t it rather up to us to come to the world, carrying
the message of the hope of Christ?

Don’t let the world give up. Let's uplift the world so young
people can believe in it. They are our tomorrow and our only
hope! The great story of faith is not reserved for the "elders."
Faith is for each one of our children.

Youth will be tomorrow what we make of them today. It is
with our wings that they will be able to lift up their hearts to
the right height! It is by our example that their desire to reach
the sky will flourish. They are the lungs of the world of
tomorrow, but it is up to us to serve as fuel for their flight. The
10fruits of their harvest will be reaped through the sweat of our
communion.

So…

Since the world of tomorrow is today, let us manifest our
‘YES to the gift of God’ by taking the Virgin Mary as
example.

Under each of our steps, Mary’s ‘YES’ is at our feet as a
drop shadow, in total humility. She accompanies us in silence
on the brink of hope. She offers her arms to take our suffering
to the foot of the cross.

Dare to live!

Act now!

The world needs our forgiveness!

Let us illuminate ourselves with the light of young people by
showing them the way. They will keep our lamps burning and
lead us much further. Let us walk in shared trust to make
them, and ourselves, free and whole beings.

Caroline d’Indy









11About Invitation to Life

The association Invitation to Life, commonly known as IVI, was
founded by Yvonne Trubert in 1983 and has been awarded by the
French government the status of “general interest”. The management of
the association is entrusted to an administrative council, according to the
law of 1901. Currently present in over 40 countries, Invitation to Life
works for the personal development of people and provides support for
all those who desire it. The association provides the means and the
structure to help members reach their goals through discovering the
potential of their soul and bringing that potential to fruition, while
following the teachings of Christ in daily life. The founding principles
of Invitation to Life aim for simplicity, without any form of esotericism
or selective intellectual process.

The Spirit
Man is much more than he seems and more than he imagines to be:
man is of divine essence, of spirit as well as matter, of atoms and
energy. The invisible part of him, his interior world, his soul, is often
neglected in our essentially materialist society.
Yet, each person is unique. Each person has specific talents that
constitute the core of his person and the foundation on which he will
build his life and his relationships with others. Man`s mission on earth is
to truly become himself and to help others. It is in accessing knowledge
and respect for self and for others that each human being contributes to
the building of a better world.

The Member’s Path
At Invitation to Life, we believe that changing the perception of an
“individual” towards that of a “person” requires personal development.
Therefore, we work to liberate ourselves from the suffering that hinders
us and prevents our soul from acting within us. In isolation, a person
cannot achieve this liberation because his suffering, fear and guilt are
difficult to identify and accept, much less overcome. The help of others
is indispensable for one’s progress. IVI Members go to prayer groups in
which the practice of respectful, silent and attentive listening to others
allows them to confront their experiences and share solutions. This
group work clarifies and drives out the causes of our suffering through
personal realisations of specific events of daily life, and tries to erase the
automatic behaviours of which we are victim.
