CWN Editor's Note: The pilgrims from Viviers (map), accompanied by their bishop, were following in the footsteps of Venerable Gabriel Longueville (1931-76), a local priest who will soon be beatified as a martyr. The Pontiff, according to the Vatican newspaper’s Italian edition (p. 15), encouraged the youth to receive God’s word with an open heart, to pray, to evangelize along life’s journey, and to read the last chapter (nos. 74-80) of St. Paul VI’s apostolic exhortation on evangelization.
