Southeastern Europe’s bishops meet to discuss outreach to youth

Catholic World News - March 04, 2011

The bishops of nine southeastern European nations are meeting in Cyprus to discuss their outreach to youth in view of the upcoming World Youth Day this August in Madrid.

“Today, being a young Catholic in our countries is not easy, but it is a challenge rich with so many good opportunities,” said Bishop Franjo Komarica of Banja Luka, Bosnia-Herzegovina-- a nation where Catholics form only 12% of the population. “It means, on the one hand, accepting feeling different from the majority of the local people even up to the point of being discriminated against on an employment and social level, and, on the other hand, it means understanding better the content of a faith which brings certainty and joy to those who live it.”
