Philippines Cardinal stresses importance of World Youth Day.

31 July 2013: The World Youth Day celebration, which closed Sunday evening in Brazil, remains relevant to young people, particularly to those seeking answers about their faith, said
Cardinal Luis Tagle of Manila . Today's youth are looking for deep answers regarding the many questions of people, especially when it comes to faith, the prelate said during the closing Mass of the local World Youth Day celebration, organized for thousands of young Catholics who were not able to attend the Rio celebration. Cardinal Tagle said the center of the celebration has always been faith. "It’s not true that youth are only after temporary happiness." He said the World Youth Day event has become more relevant because of the friendships formed during the celebration. "In a world where there is a lot of divisiveness, we see the youth from different nations gather together and become friends with each other," he added. The next World Youth Day will be held in the Polish city of Kraków in 2016
