John Paul II will be a Key Figure in WYD2011

Last edited 8th March 2011

Bishop José María Yanguas of Cuenca in Spain has said that one of the main protagonists for WYD2011 will be John Paul II, the creator of World Youth Days, whose beatification he has called “a breath of fresh air” for the Church. “He gave off, what you might call a magnetism, an energy that made you come into contact with him. Young people could sense it in a very particular way, but I think everybody felt it. He made everyone feel young.”
