.- The youth department of the Pontifical Council for the Laity has published the “WYD Magazine,” dedicated completely to World Youth Day 2008 in Sydney.
Issued in four languages, the magazine was published by the John Paul II Foundation for Youth. The 184-page color magazine features a variety of photos and articles allowing readers “to relive the different stages of this Australian event, from the pilgrimage of the Cross in Oceania to the visit of Pope Benedict XVI,” the L’Osservatore Romano noted.
Other sections focus on the catechesis sessions, the festival of youth, the Way of the Cross through the streets of Sydney, the Vigil and the Mass at the Randwick Racetrack, and the journey home.
The last pages turn the reader’s attention to Madrid, where Catholic young people will gather for World Youth Day 2011.
