Vatican City, Oct 6, 2018 / 09:10 am
The Church's youngest cardinal said Saturday that the Word of God must be the central point of the Church's message to young people.
"In the midst of crises and difficulties we need to refer to God's word because he is a rock to us," Cardinal Dieudonne Nzapalainga told reporters at an Oct. 6 press conference during the 2018 Synod of Bishops, gathered to discuss young adults, the faith, and vocational discernment.
Speaking of the synod, a gathering of bishops taking place at the Vatican Oct 3-28, the cardinal said that the assembled bishops are trying to discern together how to proclaim the Gospel among young people, and how to hear what young people have to offer to the Church.
"The whole world is gathered here and is asking 'What does God want to say to us today through the young?'"
