I want to address this theme of the Renewal and Ecumenism through the lens of the younger generation.
There are several reasons for this choice:
- Young people are central to the theme the Holy Father has chosen the for the next Synod of Bishops in the autumn of 2018
- Young people are more mobile than their elders, they travel the world, they mix with others in a way we elders did not
- Young people have had an important place in my teaching ministry in recent years
