Krakow (MTI) – The hundreds of thousands of pilgrims attending World Youth Day in Krakow this week represent the unity of the Catholic Church, Cardinal Péter Erdő, Archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest, said on Saturday.
The cardinal, who is also present for the youth event in Krakow, together with the seven other Hungarian bishops accompanying him held catechesis sessions for the Hungarian pilgrims each morning.
Erdő, who spoke with the Hungarian attendees on Friday, told MTI that young people today are more open to “reality outside of time and space” than the youth of 100 years ago. They are interested in knowing how God is present in the world and how they can communicate with God, he said.
Erdő added that World Youth Day is also important for the priests who are there because during the event they are “intensely reminded that they are still needed”.
