.- Organizers are billing the August 17 “Night of Joy” as one of the biggest evening events of World Youth Day. It will feature a procession, Eucharistic adoration and opportunities for confession along with music, speakers and guest bishops, including Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver.

Guests who will provide “impressive testimonies” include world champion soccer player Jesús Navas, magician Andrés O'Hagan, and Chiara Amirante, the founder of the Italy-based youth social advocacy group Nuovi Orizzonti.

Other bishops attending the event are Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Pla of Alcalá, Spain, Bishop Joaquin Maria Lopez de Andújar of Getafe, and Bishop Yves Le Saux of Le Mans, France.

The event is organized by the Emmanuel Community, a missionary and evangelization group. The community’s PriestBand will perform during the event, as will the Alegria Band. Translations into 10 languages will be provided via FM radio or mobile phone.

The event will take place at 7 p.m. in the air-conditioned Madrid Arena, a 30-minute walk or a 15-minute metro ride from the Plaza Mayor. Dinner will be served to all registered World Youth Day pilgrims between 6 and 7:30 p.m.
