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.  As Jesus with the disciples on the road to Emmaus, so the Church must become today the traveling companion of young people. (Pope John Paul II, Homily at World Youth Day, 1995)
