Last week was World Youth Day in Madrid.
There has been reflection on the protests. One might reflect on the inability of Roman Catholic priests not normally having the facility to absolve abortion. One might reflect on the Roman Catholic Church’s waning influence in the host country, Spain (14% of young people describe themselves religious, gay marriage has been legal since 2005, less than 15% of the population ever attends Mass, 112,000 legal abortions were performed in Spain in 2009,…)
Around two million young people were at this year’s World Youth Day.
I think it is an invitation to reflect on mission and ministry to young people. And by young people.
What are your ideas…
