World Youth Day provides a “unique experience” that enables people to connect with individuals from all over the world and fosters relationships between citizens of nations that may be in conflict with each other.
This was exemplified recently by groups of Catholic Indians and Pakistanis who met in Lisbon.
According to Fr. Godfrey Malu from the Archdiocese of Mumbai, they had a positive interaction with young Pakistanis who were delighted to meet them. Despite being from different nations with unresolved problems and border tensions, they felt united as one body of the Church during this occasion.
