[JMJ 97 - Le Cyberjournal]


Paris in August.... But in this summer of '97, Paris in August promises to be a unique if not unusual experience. 300,000 young men and women gathering in the streets of Paris in the name of... whom ? John-Paul II ? No, not because of papal authority are so many people turning out in the streets but because this Pope places his confidence in the youth of the world. The Pope is putting his trust in the young. And, of course, in Christ who lives in their hearts.

On the eve of the opening of the Youth Festival and of hundreds of joyous attractions to take place all week long, this first issue of the Cyberjournal would like to take on the rôle of apéritif as we await the banquet that is to follow. And may the menu surpass your wildest dreams !
