Pre-synodal Meeting – Youth hands Final Document to Pope Francis

Following the week long of work at the Pre-synodal meeting in Rome bringing together  320 young people from all over the world to reflect and dialogue in the build up to the Synod of Bishops on Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment, the participants of this meeting have handed over the outcome of their reflection to Holy Father at the 33rd World Youth Day Celebration in St. Peter Square, Vatican. In the introduction to the text, The youth said “This document is a synthesized platform to express some of our thoughts and experiences. It is important to note that these are the reflections of young people of the 21st century from various religious and cultural backgrounds. With this in mind, the Church should view these reflections not as an empirical analysis of any other time in the past, but rather as an expression of where we are now, where we are headed and as an indicator of what she needs to do moving forward.”
