World Youth Day Sydney

Jun 6, 2008
From the 15th of July to the 20th of July this year the World Youth Day event will be held in Australia with Sydney as the host city. World Youth Day 2008 is forecast to attract hundreds of thousands of the worlds Catholic youth. And for the first time Australia's youoth will have the opportunity to see His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI in person.

In 1986 Pope John Paul II established the first World Youth Day so that Catholic youth from across the globe could come together in celebration of their faith. WYD provides young catholics the opportunity to further their knowledge about their faith as well meet others and learn.

Governments and cultures have differing opinions as to what age a person is classified as a youth. The period between fifteen to twenty four is what the United Nations define as youth. Teenagers, young persons or adolescents are all terms used to describe youth. Some would argue that maturity of mind and spirit is a personal thing and as such a person should not be defined as such.

Society has a habit of defining and categorizing things, it helps us to understand thing better. However each one of us is unique and each one of us will experience unique situations throughout out lifetime. World Youth Day Sydney provides youth the opportunity to discover the experience of others that will enhance ther own knowledge and understanding.

The youth of today face many unique challenges and need all the support and reassurance society can give them. Investing in youth is investing in the future of mankind. As young people develop they take with them into the future lessons gained from their own experience and knowledge from their elders. The bigger the investment we make the greater the return for all society will receive.

Everyone in society can play their part in assisting our youth and elevating their understanding. At school the teachers can have great influence on students and in sport youth may look up to their heroes. Religious instruction plays a very important role in helping youth to understand their purpose in life and the importance of God role in their lives.

The 2008 Sydney World Youth Day event gives out youth the chance to show the world that together will God's blessing they are ready to face the challenges that lie ahead. The opportunity for pilgrims to gather together as one and give thanks to God should not be missed.
