"If you believe, and if you are able to live out your faith and bear witness to it every day, you will become a means of helping other young people like yourselves to find the meaning and joy of life,

which is born of an encounter with Christ... Dear young people, the Church depends on you! She needs your lively faith, your creative charity and the energy of your hope. Your presence renews,

rejuvenates and gives new energy to the Church." (ref: World Youth Day 2011 message of Benedict XVI to the young people of the world).
