inXL6 with lontemps be during liberal and diocesan of ChristiCity (more preserving and close to the new communities).
The site inXL6 was created on the initiative of a team of young catholics engaged in the French delegation for the world Days of youth (JMJ) in August 2000 with Rome, to give one following the event-driven site created for the occasion, " RomeDirect". The will of the team was to perennialize a site general practitioner of information and spirituality for the young catholics, which would not be event-driven any more but permanent, the objective announced being to have the continuity of engagements of young Christians throughout the year, and not only at the time of some large gatherings like the JMJ.
inXL6 in addition took the continuation on the Web of the first national site for the pastoral one of the young people, " Young people in Eglise" , which had been set up after the JMJ 97 in Paris.
The maturation of the gate inXL6 lasted more than one year, the site having been officially launched in October 2001, with in particular an evening joining together more than 2000 young people Wagram room in Paris. Meanwhile, the project was in particular presented to the French episcopate which approved and supported the creation of this gate.
The site is placed under the responsibility of the assistant Secretary-general of the Conférence of the bishops of France (CEF), the Father Antoine Hérouard. In an operational way, it is entirely animated by a team of young professionals and students, primarily voluntary, who ensure of it the design and the technical development as well as leading animation.
The team of drafting comprises several chroniclers for the headings sets of themes (Cultures, Prière…) and is based on the network of the coordinators of pastoral of the young people, in each Diocèse of France, as well as correspondents in the national services, movements, congregations and religious communities.
The name “inXL6” summarizes the spirit of the gate, and the intentions of the team which animates it. In excelsis (“with highest”) is also a formula resulting from a very old liturgical song. Gloria in excelsis Deo : “Glory with God with highest of the skies…”
6: the sixth day, it is the day of the creation of the man and the woman (Gn 1). And Jesus changes water into wine in six large tanks, at the time of a marriage with Cana (Jn 2).
X: Christ. The Khi is the first letter of the name of the Christ, in Greek. It is also a cross of Saint-Andrew.
in: Iesus Nazarenius , Jesus de Nazareth, the beginning of famous “the INRI” which is reproduced on the Crucifix.
XPISTOC: thus the name of Christ in Greek is written. The first two letters, X (khi) and P (rhô), were used very early to form one of the oldest Christian symbol, the Chrisme. With the chrism the Alpha and the Oméga were often associated: the first and the last letter of the alphabet Greek indeed symbolize the divinity, who is the beginning and the end, the beginning and the destiny of any thing. It is this symbolic system which was used as reference to work out the logo of inXL6.
The colors of inXL6, blue and yellow, are also strong colors: blue, symbol of the sky, are also the color of the Virgin Mary. As for the yellow, it is the symbol of the joy, the color of the great liturgical festivals, with the white.
With the technical plan, the current version of inXL6 is entirely developed with PEAR, the technical Framework of. The interface is written in XHTML 1.0/CS 1 with the concern of approaching as much as possible the complete respect of these standards. Another technical evolution: the site integrates from now on the search engine mnoGoSearch. During the development, a step quality was committed using the tool of OpQuast follow-up. The site is fed by a management system of contents developed to measure in PHP/MySQL by the inXL6 team.
In 2004, the team of the site inXL6 carried out a compilation of contemporary Christian music. The choice developed a great diversity of kinds: Rock'n'roll, pop, Gospel, Electro, Reggae, French song… two thirds of the titles is in French, a third in English. The artists are mainly of catholic confession but the Compil' inXL6 also introduces Protestant artists.
This initiative was intended to more make know the creativity of the Christian artists, in particular at a period when a scene rock'n'roll Christian woman started to emerge in France and in the catholic medium - with several years of delay on the Anglo-Saxon world and the Protestant medium.
The last beach is a title especially produced for the Compil' , from the point of view of the JMJ 2005. It is about a remix électo of the song of Sheila " Kings Mages" . The topic of the JMJ this year was indeed " We came the adorer" , word of the Magi at the time of their arrival with Jerusalem.
Among the introduced artists, one as well finds figures present of long time in the Christian song, like Pierre Eliane or TOTUS groups it, that artists having bored more recently on the Christian scene.
For each sold CD, one euro was transferred with the case of solidarity JMJ, which allowed of financier the participation of young people in the world Days of youth in Cologne in August 2005.
The Compil' inXL6 was the first significant realization out of the Web for the inXL6 team. The experiment was renewed after the JMJ 2005 with the realization of a double DVD memory marketed at the end of 2005.
