.- More than 70,000 young people traveled to the Shrine of St. Teresa of the Andes on October 20 in order to renew their commitment to be missionary disciples of Christ and to prepare for World Youth Day 2008.

A special pilgrim cross will visit different cities in Chile until July of 2008, when young people traveling to Australia will take the cross with them to WYD.
 
“This pilgrimage brings us together as Christians and citizens and calls us to continue giving faithful witness that God is the greatest joy,” said Father Galo Fernandez of the youth apostolate Esperanza Joven.

The pilgrimage was divided into twelve stations at which young people reflected on different aspects of the faith.  At midday there was a prayer for Chile, and in the afternoon Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz celebrated a closing Mass.
