The Saints and Blesseds of World Youth Day

During his Pontificate, Blessed John Paul II spoke often to young people about the call to holiness and the vocation to be saints. Following this legacy, Pope Benedict XVI assigned 18 Saints and Blesseds as special patrons and intercessors for young men and women attending Rio's World Youth Day this July.

In this article Fr. Tom Rosica of Salt + Light T.V. reflects on each of these 18 striking role models for young people today.
