New Generations of Catholics Formed in Youth Day

A quarter century of World Youth Days has renewed the Church by forming new generations of Catholics. Next year's event in Madrid will have no less impact, says an organizer.

Father Eric Jacquinet, director of the youth office of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, is following from the Vatican the preparation of the 2011 World Youth Day.

He spoke with ZENIT about the message that Benedict XVI addressed to the youth, published Friday, which has as its theme: "Planted and Built up in Jesus Christ, Firm in the Faith" (cf. Col 2:7).
