World Youth Day
This month in Australia, young people from all over the world gathered for the 23rd World youth Day. They prayed, danced and celebrated their faith. The highlight was meeting the Pope. And this year, the Pope issued a full apology for child sex abuse by priests and clergymen, saying that “Victims should receive compassion and care, and those responsible for these evils must be brought to justice.” Miriam Gormally spoke with Paul Rooney from Youth 2000 in Ireland who was at the event in Australia and he described the excitement of the world youth day in Australia.
