CWN Editor's Note: As World Youth Day opens in Panama, organizers have reported that only 150,000 young people have registered for the event: a sharp drop from previous years. However they expect up to 500,000 for the closing Mass at which Pope Francis will preside on Sunday. About 12,000 participants from the US are expected.
