Delegate's Comments on the 2018 Pre-Synod Meetings - Perspectives Daily

March 26, 2018
Pope Francis celebrated Palm Sunday Mass with thousands of young people at St. Peter’s Square yesterday where he urged them to follow Jesus’s example of outreach to the poor and suffering. Have a look.
This Palm Sunday Mass also marked the local celebration of World Youth Day and included the more than 300 young adults who, at the Vatican's invitation, had spent the past week discussing the future of the Catholic Church and ways the Church should respond.
At the end of the Mass, they formally presented their final document to the Pope which will be used to draft the working document for the upcoming Synod of Bishops in October, which is focused on young people, faith, and vocational discernment.
We had a chance to catch up with a few of the delegates who spoke to us about their experience and what they expect from the final document going forward.
Be sure to stay tuned. In the coming days, we’ll have an overview of that final document that encapsulates the hopes, desires and challenges facing the world's young people today and ways the Catholic Church should respond.
That is all that we have time for today. Join us again tomorrow, when I bring you more news and stories from the Perspectives of a Catholic Lens.
