WYD Pilgrims Engage in Catechesis Sessions




World Youth Day is well underway in Madrid. On Wednesday participants, took part in catechesis sessions at various venues around the city. One of the co-sponsors of the catechesis session for English speaking pilgrims is the Knights of Columbus. Its’ Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson made an intervention at Wednesday’s session and afterwards spoke to Emer McCarthy.

He explained to her that the session involves the themes, love and life, saying “around these two great themes are the discussions and the breakout sessions actually give the pilgrims the opportunity to interact with the speakers”.

The Supreme Knight added that “the new evangelisation depends upon the authentic witness of all Christians, not just the clergy”.

Pope Benedict XVI is due to arrive in the Spanish capital Thursday, and will preside at the solemn Mass which concludes World Youth Day on Sunday. Listen to Emer McCarthy's full interview with Carl A. Anderson RealAudioMP3
