For me, the Acamps in Budapest was a full experience with the love of God. I believe that what brought me closer to perceiving this love was the presence of the other people who participated. Their friendship and companionship always pushed me to think about how extraordinary the event was in bringing together so many different people to the same place, with the same goal and with the same desire.
Personally, the Acamps marked a turning point in my life: I understood something that seemed both obvious and distant: That despite my sins I have the right to be happy too! Nothing will ever take away the right to be happy, a right guaranteed to me by the love of God.
Everything that first deceived me, all that seemed to satisfy me in my need for passing joy, was now clearly seen for what it really was: an obstacle to my true happiness, a happiness that is beyond human understanding, a happiness that has no ends and boundaries, a happiness that until Acamps had remained hidden from my eyes, but only because I blindfolded myself.
I truly believe that message of the Acamps was this: understand and accept our right to be fully and truly happy in the grace of God.
