Encounters in the core of the faith

AFTER yesterday afternoon's unforgettable Welcoming Mass, the Youth Festival took over the capital, becoming the occasion for many a friendly encounter and an orgy of creativity that said a lot about what can be born of believing: art, taking a stand on social issues, working for peace, protecting Nature, multimedia, contemplative prayer. But it was mainly thanks to the morning catechetical workshops, place of dialogue between bishops and young people, that the core of the Christian faith became a place of encounter: "in search of the face of the Lord."
