John Paul II Named Patron for Youth Day '08 www.zenit.org
SYDNEY, Australia, NOV. 5, 2007 (Zenit.org).- World Youth Day organizers say that Servant of God Pope John Paul II was a natural choice as one of the event's 10 patrons, since the Polish Pontiff invented the gatherings.
L'Osservatore Romano published the list of patrons chosen for WYD '08, to be held in Sydney in July.
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, a student and athlete who worked with Catholic Action of Italy, also made the list. Blessed Pier died at age 24 in 1925.
