What do young people today think? What are their fears, their goals in life, their dreams? Preparing the Synod on Young People to be held this October, Pope Francis met in March with 315 young people from all over the world, aiming to gain a global view of today’s youth culture and what that means for the Catholic Church today. We asked some young people to share something about themselves. With their typical enthusiasm, they’ve already started to work for change in our communities. Here are some examples that show the future is in good hands.
