“This is what is needed: a Church for young people, which will know how to speak to their hearts and enkindle, comfort and inspire enthusiasm in it with the joy of the Gospel and the strength of the Eucharist…a Church that is not afraid to require much, after having given much, which does not fear asking from young people the noble and authentic adventure, such as following the Gospel.”

Pope John Paul II
