“What a fantastic spectacle is presented on this stage by your gathering here today! Who claimed that today’s youth has lost their sense of values? Is it really true that they cannot be counted on?”
Pope Saint John Paul II, Palm Sunday 1984
World Youth day is a gathering of young people to celebrate their faith! now in its 30th year, I was delighted to receive a last minute invitation for our daughter to attend! This is such an opportunity and whilst she has been invited by Argyll and the Isles and the Diocese of Aberdeen, not our own Archdiocese of Glasgow, I immediately said yes on her behalf! This is the future of our church, the Catholic Church, in the world - such a beautiful opportunity to bear witness to Christ!
