As many as 2.5 milliion people attended World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland, last weekend. Below is a video wrap-up of the ten main messages from Pope Francis. At a time when young people are often regarded as aimless and pessimistic, there was an atmosphere of joy and idealism about the gathering which bodes well for the future of Christianity. The next World Youth Day will take place in Panama in 2019.
