Term:   Witnesses to the Resurrection TR
Definition: Lay Spiritual Movement. On 8th December 1984 the Easter Project was born: TR 2000 ('Testes Resurrectionis' - Acts 1:21) with its own charter. Thus the TR Movement came about as a place where friends who shared the same ideal and desire could meet: to experience more closely in daily life and in the circumstances of each day, the good news of the Resurrection, as a source of life and happiness.

Description:
As a movement it is open to everyone, without limits of age, culture or origin; those who join have a particular experience of faith and friendship, and make up a “family of families”, where together they are formed in a culture of life in order to be more effective wherever the Lord calls them. Fidelity to the Risen Christ, then, is the basis of TR spirituality and the style of its membership as expressed in an Easter joy nurtured in the heart, by optimism and hope, in the service of Christ who is present in the poor. This interior attitude is at work deep down and sustains people in their difficulties of real life.
Spirit and life of the movement
The TR 2000 Movement (Witnesses to the Resurrection towards 2000, today just Witnesses to the Resurrection) comprises local cenacles in various parts of Italy that carry out the inspirational principles and aims of the movement. These local cenacles are organised into three divisions: youth, adults, volunteers. The adult division has within its ranks a group of consecrated lay women. At national level each division is represented by a National Coordinator, who refers to the Movement's General Coordinator. A notable group, in as far as it takes care of matters of particular interest, is the youth division.

Term type ('EntryTerm' if no other applies)
(1) (2)   
[Initialisms like AGC are regarded as acronyms; a term like 'Bro.' is an abbreviation; an example of short form instead would be the main part of a very long book title (most of DB's book titles! 'Giovane Provveduto' is a short form). A loan term is not translated whereas a calque is. A blend is where two (or more) morphemes or 'word' parts have been combined to form a single term, as in the case of 'austraLasia'. Choose variant when there exists at least one other common form of the term. ]

[Archaic refers to terms that have fallen out of regular use. Deprecated indicates official disapproval or if not disapproval, official abandonment at least. A neologism is a term that has come into play relatively recently - say, since Vatican II, but the time frame can be flexible.]
