"What is needed today is a church which knows how to respond to the expectations of young people. Jesus wants to enter into dialogue with them and, through His body, which is the church, to propose the possibility of a choice, which will require a commitment of their lives . . . so the church must become the traveling companion of young people..."
- Pope John Paul II, World Youth Day 1995, Philippines
